Services & Maintenance Plans

At BASi®, we strive to produce the most reliable instruments on the market. Our track record is a testament to this. When you purchase a BASi® instrument, you are investing in this reliability. However, as with most things, problems do occasionally occur. Preserve your investment and your peace of mind by purchasing a Maintenance Protection Plan. Even if your instrument never needs servicing, Protection Plan coverage entitles you to a variety of consumable accessories and services at no additional charge during the term of coverage. Select the plan which applies to your instrument purchase using one of the links below.

If you have inherited a BASi® instrument, or if you've been gambling for a year or so after your warranty has expired, you can still sign up for maintenance protection. We do require an inspection (for a fee) of any instrument no longer under warranty or under an extended warranty plan.

It is not unusual for our customers to use our products 10 years or longer, especially when the instruments are well maintained. Eventually, you may decide to expand the capabilities of your laboratory or replace your faithful old instruments. Please contact us for a new quotation. In some cases we'll even offer a trade-in allowance.

Culex® On-Site Service and Maintenance Protection Plan

An On-Site Service Plan is available for the BASi Culex ® In Vivo Sampler, including the Basic System, Add-An-Animal options and Laptop Computer/Mechanical Arm.

Without this plan, you will still be eligible for standard warranty service, should this be required. With warranty service, the user is responsible for shipping any BASi Culex ® component in need of warranty repair to a BASi® service depot. In North America, the service depot is located in West Lafayette, Indiana.

Please consult the BASi® Terms of Sale, or your BASi® sales representative, if you are not familiar with the warranty period for your instrument. The cost of the On-Site Service and Maintenance Protection Plan is most advantageous when purchased with a new instrument. Instruments which are out of warranty must be inspected by BASi® at your facility, prior to being registered for an extended warranty. There is a fee for this inspection covering time and travel.

Pricing of these contracts is normally 10% of the current list price for the instrument(s) to be covered. Since the prices may increase, it is most economical to obtain coverage at the time of initial purchase.
