As with many sensitive pieces of laboratory equipment and instrumentation, a UV Spectrophotometer can take as long as one full working day to fully de-commission, move and re-commission.
For this reason it is always essential to check the UV Spectrometer’s warranty issued by the original equipment manufacturer or vendor, prior to any move. Otherwise you risk the warranty becoming invalid.
Aport always liaises with the vendors and original equipment manufacturers before moving any laboratory instruments or equipment before any de-commissioning, moving and re-commissioning takes place. This work, combined with our significant experience in moving lab instrumentation and equipment, should offer you reassurance that our work will be carried out to the highest standards and in line with the required protocols.
Once we have liaised with the vendor or original equipment manufacturer, our specially-trained engineer would decommission the instrument, with all solvents being removed.
The UV Spectrophotometer is placed sideways into a bespoke crate built specifically to the instructions and specification of the vendor or original equipment manufacturer.
Lowering the equipment into the crate from above would be too difficult due to the instrument’s weight and size.
Shock and tilt monitors can be placed on the crate, if required by the customer or as part of the warranty. It is then moved on a pallet truck and placed into a tail lift vehicle, keeping it steady at all times.
All of the above steps are typically required when moving a UV Spectrometer from one building to another. However, if the UV Spectrometer is only being moved within the customer’s building, there is no need to place the instrument in a bespoke crate.
Aport’s global laboratory relocation service can help you, whatever country you are based in and wherever you need to move to. For more information and to discuss your specific requirements, contact us.
