Laboratory Equipment Service

Preventive maintenance is necessary to ensure that laboratory equipment is working properly and research results are reliable. Regularly performed maintenance is about extending the lifetime of laboratory equipment

Preventive Maintenance of Laboratory Equipment

Most laboratory equipment requires regularly performed maintenance to ensure that research results are valid and equipment is working without delays. It is important to be aware of manufacturer recommendations for the maintenance period. During maintenance, equipment is calibrated, possible spare part change is performed, and overall functions are checked. Nordic Service Group only uses calibrated test equipment and all service is traceable.

Repair of Laboratory Equipment

Following the manufacturer recommendations for preventive maintenance, equipment is more reliable to use. In case of equipment malfunction, we are ready to help you onsite as fast as possible. Smaller equipment can also to be sent to our local workshop throughout the Nordic region. We have local hotline support to help you with the best possible solution.

Spare parts

We use only original spare parts during equipment maintenance and repair. We sell and deliver spare parts for laboratory equipment. If you are seeking only original spare parts, please contact your local Nordic Service Group office and we will help you identify what you need.

Are you a distributor or manufacturer? We are always interested in new opportunities to share our expertise. Please contact our local department for more information.

We service, for example, the following laboratory equipment:

Centrifuges are regulated to meet safety requirements and recommendations for mechanical as well as electrical safety. Maintenance must be performed annually to ensure functionality and safety for the locking mechanism, imbalance switch, rotors, corrosion and wear. Additionally, electrical safety tests, including ground leakage and connectivity, are also needed.

Maintenance will be aligned with service manuals from manufacturers and can include:

  • Functional check
  • Visual inspection internal and external
  • Inspection of locking and brake mechanism
  • Rotor check
  • Imbalance check
  • Calibration and possible adjustment
  • General cleaning of instrument
  • Possible spare part change according to manufacturer recommendations

Incubators need a yearly preventive maintenance to ensure that temperature, CO2 and functions are within specifications. This will decrease the likelihood of breakdowns and ensure proper functioning.

Maintenance will be aligned with service manuals from manufacturers and can include:

  • Functional test of display
  • Leakage tests of hoses
  • Check of lid and backing
  • Test and calibration of CO2 set point
  • Test and calibration of temperature set point
  • Test and calibration of RH set point
  • General cleaning of instrument
  • Working hour during service/maintenance

Shakers need to be serviced according to manufacturer recommendations. Regularly performed maintenance ensures that shakers are safe to use and work according to manufacturer standards.

Preventive maintenance of the Shaker includes, for example:

  • Visual check
  • Check of shaker mechanism
  • Check of drive motor
  • Check of drive belt
  • Functional checks
  • Shaker speed calibration

Heating cabinets need to be serviced according to manufacturer recommendations. It is important to ensure that conditions are optimal for the right purpose.

Preventive maintenance of heating cabinets includes, for example, the following operations:

  • Temperature calibration according to manufacturer instructions
  • Visual check
  • Internal check

Regularly performed maintenance for microscopes is necessary to prevent delays during research. Nordic Service Group is an authorized service organization for several microscope manufacturers.

Preventive maintenance of microscopes includes, for example, the following operations:

  • Cleaning of optical parts
  • Inspection of electrical system
  • Cleaning of accessories
  • Adjustment of fluorescence

Pipettes will undergo calibration and testing to ensure that they meet the specifications in the standards: ISO 8655, DIN 12650 or SOP (Standard Operating Procedure). This should be performed annually to ensure functioning of pipette volumes in terms of adjustment and possible replacement of old parts.

Nordic Service Group offers both traceable calibrations and accredited calibrations.

Maintenance will be aligned with service manuals from manufacturers and can include:

  • Functional check.
  • Visual inspection internal and external.
  • Inspection of mechanics and wearing parts.
  • Volume calibration with weight measurement equipment.
  • Lubrication.
  • General cleaning of instrument

PCR instruments are to be validated, calibrated and functions checked to ensure that the instruments meet manufacturer specifications. This is recommended to be performed annually to ensure operation and safety in regards to temperatures in the wells. The electrical system should be checked in regards to grounding, leakage current and connectivity.

Maintenance will be aligned with service manuals from manufacturers and can include:

  • Functional check.
  • Temperature validation of the thermal blocks.
  • Check of temperature in lids.
  • Visual inspection of instruments and wells.
  • Check of fan system/heat dissipation system.
  • General cleaning of instrument and wells

Hematology analyzers need to be serviced according to manufacturer recommendations. Only through regular maintenance, it is possible to receive reliable results.

Preventive maintenance of hematology analyzers typically includes:

  • External and internal cleaning
  • Specific spare part change
  • Control check
  • WBC, RBC, PLT, HGB adjustments
  • Calibration
  • Possible software update

TOC analyzers need to be serviced according to manufacturer recommendations. Regularly performed maintenance ensures that TOC analyzers are safe to use and work according to manufacturer requirements.

Preventive maintenance of TOC analyzer includes, for example:

  • Visual check
  • Cleaning and lubricating of specific components
  • Software version check and possible update
  • Wavelength accuracy check
  • Gas flow level measurement (min/max)
  • Error code checks
  • Cooling water level check/fill
  • Other needed measurements according to the manufacturer
