Lab Equipment

Lab equipment functions longer and more reliably when serviced regularly. As per the relevant directive, each department/institute is responsible for ensuring that its equipment is serviced. We plan, coordinate, and carry out maintenance and small repairs, and contract external service providers where required. 

1st-Level Support

We check your equipment on site. If the repairs can be carried out by the UZH technician, you will only be charged for the replacement parts. If an external service provider is required, the costs will be charged directly to the department/institute.

Note: The instruments must be cleaned in advance to ensure that the technician is not exposed to any health risks.
