Week of the circular economy 2020

Week circulaire economie 2020 ENG

The week of the circular economy 2020 took place in the Netherlands from Monday 3 February to Friday 7 February 2020. Various entrepreneurs organize all kinds of events to include other professionals in the circular economy.

On Thursday 6 February we opened our doors for a unique look within our organization.
With an interesting program about circular economy in the lab, circular purchasing, circular and safety, repair and maintenance, we have introduced our guests to the circular economy and gave useful tips on how you can contribute your circular contribution to the objective "the Netherlands Circular 2050 ". In addition, we gave a tour around our showrooms, our workshop and our extensive warehouse.


LabMakelaar Benelux keeps on growing!

Nieuwe hal 02-01-2020
Since June 2016 we are located in our building on the Knibbelweg in Zevenhuizen (ZH).
Due to the enormous growth of LabMakelaar Benelux B.V. in recent years, we no longer fit into our current jacket. We have now grown to 10 employees, 5 flex workers, some local agents and 3 business divisions:
-LabMakelaar (
for laboratory equipment and furniture) (for glassware and disposables)
-LabForRent (for renting and renting out laboratory spaces)

Our logistics flow has become so large that our current warehouse is no longer adequate.

The property of our neighbors became vacant on January 1st and we took over the rent.
The space will be used as a warehouse for the storage of our stock of laboratory furniture.
Due to the expansion with this building, we have almost doubled the surface of our warehouse!

The building will be prepared for use in the coming weeks.
For example, the space must be set up as a warehouse and a passage from our current warehouse to the new one must be made. Via our social media we will regularly update and you can follow the progress of the renovation.

If you want to come and take a look yourself, sign up now for a visit during the Week of the Circular Economy.

Black Friday turns into Green Friday


Friday, November 29 is "Black Friday". A day that many people see as the perfect moment for Christmas shopping due to high discounts. LabMakelaar also sees Black Friday as a dark day for the climate. Over-consumption has a major impact on the environment. In addition to the use of raw materials and the use of fossil fuels for production and worldwide transport, the mountain of waste is also increasing due to "bad bargain". And they are lurking even more during Black Friday because of these high discounts.

To be able to do something back for our planet, at LabMakelaar it's not Black Friday, but "Green Friday". We don't give (extra) discounts on this day, but we give trees.

For every € 250,- we generate in sales on Friday November 29, we plant a tree during the Dutch national tree day, March 18 2020*. You contribute to corporate social responsibility, we plant the trees. In this way we keep our earth green and healthy together. After all, you realize a strong circular economy together.

LabMakelaar Benelux strives a world with a strong circular economy in which companies get easy access to a total solution for furnishing and equipment of their laboratory with good quality and recycled material. We can help you with this. Via our marketplace we give laboratory equipment a second, third or even fourth life. This saves a lot of raw materials and fuels through reuse. In addition, you will always benefit from our discounts, up to 50% compared to new. Circular procurement is therefor not only eco-friendly, but also budget-friendly.

*a maximum of 80 trees. Contribution to a local event during the National Tree Day or via a contribution to Treesforall.

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)?
CSR Netherlands is the Centre of Excellence for Dutch companies that are striving towards corporate social responsibility. More than 2000 companies are affiliated with this networking organization. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is an integral vision of sustainable business practices. CSR Netherlands' approach to CSR is based on the European Commission's definition: corporate social responsibility refers to companies taking responsibility for their impact on society.
We are developing a dynamic and fast-growing business network comprised of members as diverse as beginners, advanced users and leaders, small and medium-sized enterprises and corporate giants. CSR Netherlands shows the market opportunities that CSR offers, facilitates mutual collaboration and provides useful information on applying CSR in practice. We inspire, connect and support companies and sectors in their efforts to make great strides in corporate social responsibility.

LabMakelaar is pleased to help you with laboratory equipment and setting up your laboratory in a CSR way. Please contact us to find out how we can help you.
