Scientific instrument service plans designed to meet your unique needs

The unique focus of each laboratory creates the need for a comprehensive portfolio to expertly address varied service needs. Unity™ Lab Services instrument service plans get you up and running faster, with 50% faster response times and 30% less downtime compared to customers without a service plan.

In addition to faster service and reduced downtime, service plan customers have exclusive access to Enhanced Technical Support, which uses Digital Remote Support tools that enable more than 35% remote resolution of issues to get you up and running faster. For repairs requiring on-site corrective services, we offer varied response targets to meet your needs as well as an industry-exclusive requalification (RQ) benefit for service plan customers. Finally, ensuring you receive annual preventive maintenance for all plans helps increase instrument uptime and gives you confidence your instrument is running according to specifications.
