EXAMPLES OF OUR WORK
Here are a few examples of some of the items that we routinely perform maintenance on therefore continuing the excellent results from an older instrument without having to replace the entire module.
The valves on the FS3000 platform were built to last – Swedish technology that is still very capable of delivering precise sample volume again and again. Over time the tubing or stator assembly can get clogged, the shaft or clutch can get worn, or even the bulkhead fittings can crack which all cause the valve to not perform correctly. Send us your valve and we will clean and replace all tubing, flow test for functionality for $325. If there are other bigger issues we will let you know what those extra costs may be. Instead of buying a new valve just let us go through your valve in detail and extend its life for many more years.

The peristaltic pump is a very important component in the proper operation of an autoanalyzer instrument. If it is not functioning properly, it’s possible to have problems with reproducibility, accuracy, and prematurely worn pump tubing. These signs of a pump problem might be observed as poor peak shape, split peaks, tailing peaks, surging, and inconsistent flow. Most mechanical issues with peristaltic pumps can be resolved with service instead of investing in a brand new pump. EZkem offers three levels of pump repair service for your autoanalyzer flow analysis systems; Ismatec Pump Reconditioning Service, Ismatec Pump Rollerhead Rebuild or the Ismatec Pump Repair Service.
Our basic Pump Reconditioning Service includes disassembling, cleaning, reassembling and testing the pump. If the rollerheads on your pump are worn or not rotating properly check out our Ismatec Pump Rollerhead Rebuild which includes new bearings and gears. The Ismatec Pump Repair Service consists of a full diagnostic evaluation of the gear motor, circuit board, gears and bearings. And because EZkem’s primary goal is to keep your lab running, we always offer a free loaner pump while your equipment is being serviced (shipping not included). Need more information? Read the Poor Reproducibility? 3 Reasons Your Peristaltic Pump Could Be The Problem on the EZkem blog, view our video series on the proper maintenance for a peristaltic pump, possible problems that can occur with a peristaltic pump and how to troubleshoot for these issues or contact us at 541.387.0343.
Save your money to put toward a bag of pump tubes or even a new system! We’ll recondition your current flowcell for about half the price of purchasing a new one. Flowcell reconditioning includes cleaning and polishing the inside of the flow cell, installing new windows and gaskets and flow testing to ensure proper functionality. Let us help you keep the equipment you have working optimally!
EZkem has the ability to take your old Cetac 500 or 510 autosampler model and upgrade it to the current 520 model. The older models required specific processors for each platform. The nice thing about the 520 autosampler is that it can be programmed for any platform such as OI Analytical, Lachat, Agilent, Perkin Elmer, etc. Instead of buying a new auto sampler for more than $10K why not spend around $2K to upgrade your old sampler to the current version? Send us your old Cetac 500 or 510 sampler and simply tell us what platform you want to run it on and we will send you back a current refurbished 520 model with a 2 year warranty. Call us for a quote: 541-387-0343. For more Cetac Autosampler Tips & Tricks visit our EZkem channel on YouTube.
EZkem can test your heater spindle assembly for functionality, re-wrap the spindle assembly with new tubing and/ or replace the heater cable if it’s faulty. During a cartridge refurbishment with heater, we re-wrap the heater in brand new Teflon tubing to prevent any clogs and guarantee proper flow.
