A Diode Array Detector forms part of High-Performance Liquid Chromatography equipment, or ‘HPLC Stack’.
A sensitive piece of laboratory equipment, the amount of support required to move a Diode Array Detector will depend on whether it is being moved within your building or externally.
If you are moving the Diode Array Detector to another building or premises as part of a move involving the HPLC Stack and other lab instrumentation, two or more bespoke crates will be required which Aport would provide.
If the Diode Array Detector is being moved within your building, there is no need to place the instrument in a bespoke crate.
However, whether the move is internal or external it is still critical to ensure any de-commissioning, move and re-commissioning of lab equipment is carried out to the standards specified in the vendor’s or original manufacturer’s warranty. Any move carried or work outside of this is likely to make the warranty invalid.
Aport has significant experience in moving laboratory instrumentation and equipment, and can liaise with vendors and original equipment manufacturers prior to any decommissioning and recommissioning work. This ensures the work is carried out in line with their protocols and standards.
Once we have liaised with the vendor or original equipment manufacturer, our specially-trained engineer would decommission the instrument. All solvents are removed and cabling is kept in place.
Shock and tilt monitors can be placed on the crate, if required by the customer or to ensure ongoing validity of the warranty.
Aport’s global laboratory relocation service can help you through the whole process of de-commissioning, moving and re-commissioning of laboratory instrumentation and equipment.
