Returns – we make it easy

We endeavor to process and resolve your questions, problems or return requests (for recalibration, repair, maintenance or rental units) as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our simple RMA (return material authorization) process helps you to return your equipment without delays.

The first step is to contact us, so that we can try to solve your problem together without a return. When you do need to organize a return for your device, please complete the RMA form then follow the instructions that we send you with your RMA number.

We’re here to help!

Step 2: Complete and return an RMA Number Request Form

The form is available in your Customer login section or ask us to send you a pdf. Please don’t send your device without an RMA number. If you need a service report or an 8D report on the analysis and repair of your device, please request it at this stage.

Step 3: Return your device

Use the RMA number and shipping information we send you. Please follow packing directions, especially for Incubator Shakers which need transportation locks.

Step 4: We assess and repair your device

We repair devices covered by warranty immediately. If your device is out of warranty, we provide you with a cost estimate, and start on the repair immediately after you approve our quote (by email or order). After we’ve repaired your device, it undergoes the same standard of quality inspection that we use for all new products.

Step 5: We return your repaired device

We ship to the return address you’ve provided in the RMA form. The turnaround time for repairs is 2-4 weeks and for calibrations 3-5 weeks. We will give you a more accurate estimate when we receive your device for assessment.
