Q: Is there any warranty on equipment?

A: We offer a two year warranty on all new Medline-branded laboratory equipment and Ceti microscopes with additional warranty packages on all other equipment (please contact us for further details).

Within the initial warranty period the term of repair for “all parts & labour” is valid during normal working hours only (Monday to Thursday 09.00am – 17.30pm and Friday 09.00am – 16.30pm), refers to spare parts required for the repair/exchange of an integral item that has failed and does not include consumables, failure through fair wear and tear or any item damaged through neglect or misuse
