The Importance of Preventative Maintenance

Prevention is better than… An expensive mass spec breakdown!

When a mass spec instrument fails, the costs can be enormous. Lost productivity, derailed research programmes and expensive repairs or replacements can seriously damage businesses. A single mass spec part such as a turbo pump can easily cost more than £15,000 to replace if its normal wear and decline is ignored.
Every lab manager knows that replacing mass spec instruments is a costly business. And while lost time and research costs are hard to quantify, it’s easy to appreciate that the impact of a breakdown is far-reaching and even business-critical.
Fortunately, the solution is a simple one. A high quality preventative maintenance programme not only protects your mass spec against major breakdowns, but keeps instruments working at maximum accuracy and productivity. It’s remarkably cost-effective, too: you should expect to pay no more than 10-12% of your instrument’s purchase value for a regular, professional preventative maintenance programme.
