Instrument Maintenance, Calibration & Repair

The after-sales care of your equipment is as important as the initial purchase. The key to keeping this equipment running reliably and smoothly is a regular maintenance programme carried out by qualified and industry trained engineers. 

VWR Technical Services can offer tailor made maintenance  agreements with a choice of service and calibration intervals for a huge range of laboratory equipment and instrumentation.

  • Autoclaves, media preps, ovens, incubators & furnaces
  • Centrifuges, fume hoods & microbiological cabinets
  • Glassware washing machines & water purification systems
  • Hitachi & VWR collection HPLC equipment
  • Freezers, -80’s, refrigerators & cryogenics systems
  • Balances, pipettes, microscopes
  • PCR machine & hot blocks

VWR Technical Services understand the importance of instrument accuracy and precision to ensure our customers can achieve repeatable valid results. Our UKAS accreditation to the BS EN ISO 17025 standard enables us to provide this piece of mind by performing a wide range of temperature and rotational speed calibrations.

This expertise can also be extended to full IQ-OQ-PQ protocols, data logging, temperature mapping, validation report compilation, review and approval.


Our workshop is equipped with state-of -the-art calibration and test facilities and everything required for repairing lab equipment and instruments. In many cases this can be a more economical solution than a field based engineers visit.
