So what can we do for you?

We offer 7 service types to maximize your results

1
Maintenance and repair

Maintenance

One of the most important aspects of your plant tissue culture and seed laboratories is that all the equipment works well. Media preparators, autoclaves, sterilizers, and other equipment are expensive investments and in order to keep them functioning properly, you need to maintain them very well. Small errors could lead to catastrophic results in your lab. Therefore, we offer maintenance and repair services. Our team of technicians can help you with maintaining your equipment to make sure it works according to all the requirements of a plant tissue culture and seed lab.

If your equipment does not function as it should, we can repair it for you as well. Both maintenance and repair can be done onsite or in our own workshop, depending on the nature of the activity. Our technicians will also answer your emails or assist you with a phone or video call. We will find out what the best suitable option for your specific situation is and consult this with you.

Our technicians are VCA/SCC certified as it is important for us that both our customers and technicians (can) work in a safe and healthy enviroment. SCC is the abbreviation for SHE (Safety, Health and the Environment) Checklist Contractors. This SCC system is a tried and tested programme in which various Dutch industrial sectors have bundled their 25 years of knowledge and experience. SCC certification lays the foundations for a safe and healthy work environment.

Custom manufacturing

Manufacturing

Every lab is different and although we offer a wide range of laboratory equipment, disposables, necessities and biochemicals, sometimes a special situation needs a specific solution. If you need something that is not in our product offering, we will use our extended network to find it for you. Our technicians are also specialized in dealing with plant tissue culture and seed laboratory equipment and are therefore able to customize it to meet your special demand.
Some possibilities for equipment customization:

  • Additional options for our media preparators
  • Adjust the volume of sterilizers and autoclaves
  • Adjust the wattage of equipment
  • Adjust water purification systems in a way that they are suitable to purify local tap or ground water

However, we do not limit ourselves to laboratory equipment. We can also provide you with customized solutions for e.g.

  • Biochemicals
