AB Maintenance is a service plan designed to maximize instrument performance on a limited budget. It is ideal for laboratories that have no critical availability needs and for those with the internal resources and expertise to maintain instrumentation on an ongoing basis.

Key Features include:

  • Planned maintenance
  • Target two–business-day on-site response time
  • Phone and e-mail access to Technical Assistance Center

AB Maintenance Plus offers all of the benefits of the standard AB Maintenance Plan, plus a 10% discount on parts, travel, and labor for remedial repairs.*
