Your Laboratory Equipment Needs Since 1975
regarding Spectrofuge's continuing support for Sorvall
RC2B, RC3B, RC5, RC5B, and RC5C centrifuges
January 6, 2011
Subject: Service Support of
Thermo Scientific (Sorvall) Floor Model Superspeed
It has come to our attention
that Thermo Scientific has issued important product
information regarding the Sorvall RC2, RC3, and RC5
series centrifuges. According to correspondence from
Thermo Scientific, full service contracts for these
models have been discontinued as of 1/31/2010.
Effective 1/31/2011, Thermo Scientific will no longer
provide support and service. Parts will not be
available from Thermo Scientific for these models.
Spectrofuge would like to
assure all of our contract and time/materials
customers that we will continue to support all of the
RC series centrifuges that have been discontinued by
the manufacturer. This includes the RC2B, RC3B,
RC5, RC5B and RC5C models. We have taken measures
to maintain our parts inventory for these models.
Spectrofuge foresees that we will be able to provide
service and support for these as well as all other
Thermo Scientific Sorvall centrifuges for many more
years to come.
Spectrofuge has continually
sought out parts sources from various suppliers over
the years in preparation for situations like this. We
take pride in the fact that we can maintain the older
equipment in the research community in order that the
researchers can focus on the task at hand instead of
funding new equipment.
Spectrofuge appreciates the
loyalty of all of our customers, past and present. We
are always available to answer any questions about
your equipment and assist you with your service needs.
Please call us at 919-361-2197 anytime. Thank you
again and we look forward to working with all of you
in the future.
