What supplies do I need?

You will need the consumables starting out: 

 

Can I view the Beckman Biomek i5 Liquid Handler in person at your facility or do a live Zoom demo before it is shipped to me?

We offer both onsite and remote demos via Zoom.

  • We invite you to come in for an onsite Demo or schedule a Zoom demo of the Beckman Biomek i5 Liquid Handler. Should you have any concerns, it will give you peace of mind.

 What about the warranty? Installation, training, maintenance?

Warranty Terms:

  • The instrument comes fully warranted for both parts and labor.
  • The customer should retain all packing materials during the warranty period.

 

What should I watch out for when buying a Beckman Biomek i5 Liquid Handler used/pre-owned from another lab?

Basic steps to confirm quality:

  • Confirm that all the Beckman Liquid Handler’s robotic axis are operational and everything is level and calibrated. 
  • Confirm there is no present physical damage. (Cracked/broken panels allow air flow that can affect accuracy and are not cheap to replace)
  • Confirm that the pipetting channels aspirate and dispense accurately. We recommend asking is seller can complete Artel MVS verification.
  • Make sure there are no loose/damaged components.
  • Make sure the door pistons work reliably; bad pistons can drop the hood suddenly, causing injury and/or spilled samples.  
  • Ensure the Beckman Liquid Handler’s robotic arm does not skip steps, is not bent, and moves freely on all axes.
  • Confirm that the Beckman Liquid Handler is appropriate to your application. Exchanging or upgrading your system after the fact will be costly.
  • Make sure there are no missing components, including carriers you may require.
  • If you encounter any of the issues above, expect an expensive repair bill. Thus, we recommend confirming everything before you order.

 

If you have concerns, we highly recommend inspecting the Beckman Liquid Handler in person or doing a live Zoom call; this will allow you to evaluate the robotic pipetting system and confirm that everything works.

 

This procurement is for a University or College. Are purchase orders with NET terms accepted?
  • If you are a US or Canadian customer, we are likely already a registered vendor in your University's vendor system. This would greatly expedite the process of PO approvals and get the Beckman Liquid Handler into your lab faster.
  • NET terms are accepted from US & Canadian universities and Fortune 500 companies.

 

 How fast will you ship?
  • We can ship within a few days to 2 weeks. Ship times depend on the current demand for our instruments and the customization required. Members of our sales team will be able to offer current estimates.

 

Will my instrument be insured during shipping?
  • All Beckman Liquid Handler systems are shipped fully insured within the US and internationally as long as we are a shipper and handle shipping arrangements.
  • If the buyer handles shipping, then shipping insurance responsibility falls to the buyer; we highly advise that the buyer obtain shipping insurance from their carrier.

 

 How do you pack? Have you packed and shipped Beckman Biomek i5 Liquid Handler? Do you ship Internationally?

Packing

  • Most Beckman Liquid Handlers ship in fully enclosed ISPM-15 certified wooden crates, with proper padding underneath and the sides, and have moving components braced.
  • Accessories are packed safely in boxes with padding and then safely packed inside the crate.
  • We may not use a crate for local deliveries to save you money *if delivered by us.
  • We often use “tilt’ & “shock” indicators on the crates to ensure the crate has not been excessively tilted and dropped where equipment may suffer damage.
  • Photos are taken during the packing process to make sure nothing is missed.

 

USA/Canada Shipping

  • Within the US and Canada, we will ship via selected freight carriers. We do not use low-price/high-damage carriers as we want the equipment to get safely to you.

 

International Shipping

  • Internationally, we will only ship via Air Freight or Air Parcel (such as UPS or DHL), which provides reliability, no exposure to Ocean weather, and timely delivery.
    We have extensive experience shipping robotic liquid handlers around the world.

 

Our experience and process

  • We have safely packed and shipped hundreds of sensitive analytical instruments, including Beckman Biomek i5 Liquid Handlers.
  • Before final packing/shipping, the Beckman Biomek i5 Liquid Handler is re-checked to verify performance.

 

 Sustainability
  • Well, this one is easy; buying a pre-owned Beckman Biomek i5 Liquid Handler is great for the planet; you are reducing unnecessary waste, CO2 output, and water use that would be used during the manufacturing process.
