An Unmatched Refurbishing Process

There are plenty of companies out there claiming to provide properly refurbished lab instrumentation, but the truth is that some “refurbished” products are nothing more than used equipment. That’s not the case with Black Dog Certified refurbished instruments. Here’s what you can expect:


Thorough Evaluation: We test and inspect instruments to assess refurbishing needs.


Complete Refurbishing: We recondition to the highest quality standards, including replacing worn parts and instrument updates, as needed


Rigorous Testing: We ensure uncompromised performance and accuracy.


Peace of Mind: Our instruments are backed by a generous warranty.

“Tom and his son at Blackdog Technical Services went out of their way to refurbish an old FLIPR for us about 12 years ago. After that, they invariably have provided outstanding maintenance and service. I recommend Blackdog Technical Services without reservations.”
