What should I watch out for when buying a Covaris S2 Focused Ultrasonicator used/pre-owned from another lab?

Basic steps to confirm quality:

  • Confirm that degassing pump operates quietly; this is often an issue with these systems.
  • Confirm there is no present physical damage to the ultrasonicator.
  • Confirm the operation of the ultrasonics and their intensity.
  • Make sure there are no loose/damaged pumps that may cause leaks.
  • Make sure the electronics are not corroded from moisture.
  • Ensure the operation of the Safety Interlocks if equipped.
  • Confirm that the Covaris S2 Focused Ultrasonicator is appropriate to your application.
  • Make sure it includes the water chiller, it is required for proper operation
  • Make sure there are no missing components; it won`t be fast or inexpensive to correct.


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


 Do you have Covaris S2 Focused Ultrasonicators on hand?

We stock multiple Covaris S2 Focused Ultrasonicators along with many replacement parts. 


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 focused ultrasonicator into your lab faster.
  • POs are accepted from US and Canadian universities.


 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. Members of our sales team will be able to offer current estimates.


Will my instrument be insured during shipping?
  • All Covaris S2 Focused Ultrasonicators 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 ultrasonicators in the past? Do you ship Internationally?


  • Most ultrasonicators 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 or smaller ultrasonicators 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 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, which provides reliability, no exposure to Ocean weather, and timely delivery.
    We have extensive experience shipping ultrasonicators around the world.

Our experience and process

  • We have safely packed and shipped hundreds of sensitive analytical instruments, including ultrasonicators.
  • Before final packing/shipping, the instrument is re-checked again for proper operation.


How much will I save buying it pre-owned, and is it worth it?

A lot…and it is certainly worth it, and here is why.  Feel free to ask for feedback from hundreds of customers that bought from us.

  • You will save around 85% vs. buying a new S220 ultrasonicator.  Why not spend leftover funds on another instrument for your lab?
  • You will get a 90 days warranty, plus, when available, an option to obtain an extended warranty agreement. 
  • Get peace of mind knowing that your instrument was tested and working the day it left our facility and is covered if there are faults.


Covaris S2 Focused Ultrasonicator is a predecessor model to the Covaris S220 Focused Ultrasonicator; The Covaris S220 could be priced up to $55,000. So why not save your funds by buying Covaris S2 Focused Ultrasonicator, get the high-quality sample processing you expect from Covaris, and use your leftover funds elsewhere?

  • Well, this one is easy; buying a pre-owned Covaris S2 Focused Ultrasonicator is great for the planet; you are reducing unnecessary waste, CO2 output, and water use that would be used during the manufacturing process.
