Regular maintenance of your AKTA Start is essential for safe and trouble-free operation, and routine cleaning should be standard practice in your lab. But what about more the complex, time-consuming procedures required for a full preventative maintenance (PM)? iLab Solutions’ fully trained AKTA service engineers will visit you on-site to ensure your AKTA Start is serviced according to the GE recommended routine:
- Clean the system flow path – running the system cleaning, pump wash A/B and washout fractionation tubing methods.
- Clean and calibrate UV and conductivity flow cells.
- Perform zero offset calibration for the pressure sensor, calibrate the pump and calibrate the UV LED.
- Replace the inlet filters, tubing and connectors.
We’re also available for breakdown and repair call-out, avoiding the inconvenience of packing up your system and sending it back to base. We think that a scientist’s time is best spent doing research, not servicing instruments! If you don’t fancy carrying out your own full PM, why not contact us now for a no-obligation quote?
