Medical Equipment: 3 Things To Consider Before Buying

Posted by

Medical equipment plays an integral role in the operations of clinics, hospitals, and labs around the world. Whether it’s an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), a fetal monitor or an automatic sterilizer, these pieces of machinery assist doctors and researchers alike in saving lives and advancing the field of medicine. And if you’re shopping around for upgrades, it’s important to make sound decisions for your staff and/or patients. So, here are three things to keep in mind before you make that purchase.

Used Can Be As Good As New

Refurbished or used medical equipment can be an extremely cost-effective way of outfitting your clinic or lab. Many people underestimate the performance and quality of these pieces of equipment. However, reprocessed equipment and devices go through a very detailed and thorough process to ensure they function as needed. So, if you’re exploring options, it’s definitely one to keep in mind.

Don’t Forget About Warranties!

When shopping around for medical equipment, be sure to also take into consideration warranty and repair guarantees. Some warranties may last longer than others or incorporate more options. These alternatives can go a long way in preventing future repair costs, thereby saving your overall expenditures.

That Old Medical Equipment Could Still Be Worth Something!

While your first inclination may be to simply toss out that old piece of equipment, you may actually be able to still sell it for a small profit. Many vendors will buy broken-down items in order to use any viable parts for repairs to other items.

We understand that medical equipment can be a costly investment. Here at Booth Medical Equipment, we want to help you make the wisest decisions for your clinic or lab. That’s why we offer a diverse selection of both new and used medical equipment to best accommodate your needs. Plus, we’ll also buy your used autoclaves as well, dead or alive!
