Since 1999, ALT has been your trusted source for used lab equipment.  We’ve been providing used lab equipment solutions to analytical labs all over the world ranging from small private start-up labs, to college and university labs, to large international pharmaceutical companies.  ALT is the largest used lab equipment reseller in the United States featuring more than 30,000 square feet of inventory which allows us to physically stock all of the items on our website – we’re not brokers and we’re not an auction company.  Headquartered in Connecticut, ALT serves all of the major biotech hubs including Boston, San Diego, San Francisco, Research Triangle Park and everything in between. We also supply used lab equipment to labs and universities in more than 50 countries worldwide including Brazil, India, and China.


ALT offers used lab equipment at 50% - 80% off the cost of comparable new equipment.  However, lower cost doesn’t mean lower quality.  Our dedicated staff of engineers has more than 60 years of combined experience to help ensure that the product meets manufacturer’s specifications.  All items come complete with the inspection date, engineer’s name, and a copy of test results, if applicable.  Additionally, all items are thoroughly cleaned and packed with care to ensure they arrive safely in your lab.
