There is sometimes a misunderstanding in the medical community, particularly in medical labs, about the difference between used and refurbished medical equipment. Our sales team at MYCO Instrumentation, Inc. will always take the time to explain the difference to our customers and clients, which will allow you to make the best choice for your facility.

To provide a general explanation and the benefits and considerations for the choice of refurbished medical equipment and used equipment, let’s take a closer look at what each term means.

Used Equipment

The term “used equipment” is often the major point of confusion. After all, refurbished is technically used, but it is also differently handled once it arrives at MYCO Instrumentation, Inc.

Used equipment is sold through our website and locations is only procured from reputable sellers. We fully decontaminate all equipment we sell, both used and refurbished, ensuring there is no concern about past samples tested or any type of cross-contamination in your lab or testing facility.

Refurbished Equipment

The term refurbished medical equipment refers to a more in depth and complete processing of the equipment. In addition to making any repairs and completing the decontamination process, our team of expert technicians will also give the equipment a complete system tune-up.

This means that all parts that show any signs of wear are replaced and all regular and recommended maintenance is performed on the equipment. We stand behind our work and offer a warranty with our refurbished devices and systems.

Both refurbished and used medical equipment is sold in fully operational condition. They are excellent choices to add to your current testing capacity or to provide necessary equipment in a new lab. Contact us today to find out more about our equipment inventory!
