Servicing of microtomes, cryostats and laboratory freezers
Bright Instruments offer high quality, fast, reliable cryostat and microtome service and repairs, by factory trained service engineers with many years’ professional experience. It is recommended that all instruments are serviced annually, this will help to keep the instrument in good condition, reduce the risk of breakdowns, and prolong its life span.
At Bright Instruments we can offer our customers an annual service contract agreement tailor made to suit your needs and budget. Contract customers receive priority treatment, annual service due reminders, and discounts for multiple year contracts.
Sharpening of microtome blades
Most types of knives can be resharpened using our automatic machinery located in our factory, and, where necessary, regrinding can also be carried out.
A completed decontamination certificate and an official purchase order must accompany all knives. Appropriate knife boxes must be used. If a knife is received in an unsuitable container, a box will be supplied and charged to the customer [see prices to the right].
Customers will be advised if the knife is too badly damaged or worn for economical re-sharpening. Re-sharpened knives are normally dispatched within one week of receipt. Please allow approximately £10.00 for return postage and packing within the UK. Please refer to our factory for postage and packing costs for knives coming in from abroad.
