There are a lot of benefits to purchasing refurbished microscopes. First and foremost is cost. The savings alone are enough reason to go the route of refurbished products. A second benefit of refurbished microscopes is their environmental friendliness, which helps reduce the amount of waste in landfills and the need to wholly replace models that might be 80% functional but only need a few new parts.

A Note about E-Waste

“E-waste”, “electronic waste”, “e-scrap” and “end-of-life electronics” are terms often used to describe used electronics that are nearing the end of their useful life, and are discarded, donated or given to a recycler. Though “e-waste” is the commonly used term, the EPA considers e-waste to be a subset of used electronics and recognizes the inherent value of these materials that can be reused, refurbished or recycled to minimize the actual waste that might end up in a landfill or improperly disposed in an unprotected dump site either in the US or abroad. You can help reduce “e-waste” through the purchase of a refurbished microscope!
