Preventative Maintenance with MarathonLS
Preventative maintenance takes minimal effort from lab managers and end users. Simply schedule your visit and be sure to move products from the instrument beforehand.
- Preparing for your PM appointment will allow the engineer to be in and out efficiently, so you can get
back to your critical research.
Preventative maintenance visits are quick – they can take less than an hour depending on the instrument and its condition.
Before the engineer leaves, they will clean and test the instrument and its operation and provide a record of the appointment, so you know when the instrument requires its next PM.
If the instrument requires extra labor or new parts, a Marathon team member will follow up with a quote before moving forward with any additional work.
