Dutch campaign "appreciate it, repair it"

Whether it is a coffee machine or laboratory equipment. In the Netherlands alone 10.9 milion kilos of electrical appliances and textiles are discarded every week. After a minor repair, however, these can often still be fine.

With the campaign "Waardeer het, Repareer het" (appreciate it, repair it), Dutch organisation SIRE wants to encourage as many Dutch people as possible to repair their broken things and to make people aware of the value of their possessions. Do not simply throw away defective equipment, but appreciate it and repair it.

LabMakelaar Benelux has a very experienced service departement to carry out the repair and maintenance of all your laboratory equipment in our well-involved workshop. We can also have repairs carried out on site via one of our renowed service partners.

LabMakelaar Benelux strives for a world with a strong circular economy, in which companies have easy access to a total solution for the design and equipment of their laboratory with high quality ans recycled material. We can help you with this.

We give laboratory equipment a second, third or even fourth life via our marketplace. Here you can easily and efficiently sell your surplus and valuable laboratory instruments, equipment and furniture. You can also search for affordable, second-hand laboratory instrumenst, laboratory equipment and laboratory furniture yourself. All devices from our own purchased stock are technically fully tested and come with a 6-month warranty.

If you want to know what we can do for you in the field of repair and/or reuse of laboratory equipment and furniture, please

Requirements of a Microbiological Safety Cabinet

LM ValidR

Have you purchased a microbiological safety cabinet or are you considering a purchase?
From that moment your employees can work safely. Depending on the class of your safety cabinet, it offers you the following safety:
-Protection for the person working on the cabinet
-Protection for the product you work with
-Protection for the environment in which you work

It is important that these forms of protection are regularly checked.
We call this check a validation and are laid down in the NEN-EN 12469 (2000) standard. This standard describes the performance requirements of a microbiological safety cabinet and the tests to be performed during a validation.

There are set times when a validation must take place:
-Before first use
-When changing the location of the safety cabinet
-Annual check

Your new purchase must therefore be tested before you start working with it to be sure that it meets your requirements and that your employees can work safely.

A standard validation consists of:
-Filter integrity test
-Air speed measurements
-Visualize flow profiles

LabMakelaar Benelux B.V. cooperates with ValidR, a company that specializes in validation of microbiological safety cabinets.

LabMakelaar Benelux joines MVO Nederland as a partner

CSR Labmakelaar juni 2019

LabMakelaar Benelux B.V. strives for a world with a strong circular economy. Our ambition is that it becomes a standard to re-use laboratory equipment and furniture (upcycling). With upcycling, the materials, unlike with recycling, are not yet separated and the product is re-used in its entirety.
A circular economy is also aimed at re-using products while maintaining quality and value. This needs less raw materials for production, it will save money, reduce residual waste and you act environmentally conscious.
With this, Labmakelaar Benelux wants to be seen as an ambassador of upcycling in the laboratory design industry. One first looks within the circular laboratory range for the equipment needed to set up the laboratory. Only when it's not possible to find it second hand, you start looking for new.

To reinforce our ambition, we have joined MVO Nederland as a partner.

What is MVO Nederland (CSR Netherlands)?
