Equipment Manager | Avantor

Effective equipment management—a plan and process that covers lab equipment’s full lifecycle from purchase to de-acquisition—is vital if a lab is going to function well and move research forward without costly delays due to missing or poorly maintained lab equipment.

At Avantor, we used our decades of knowledge gained from selling and servicing lab equipment to create proprietary cloud-based Equipment Manager software. This vendor-agnostic digital solution allows us to support you in asset management. Organized tracking of documents and certifications eases audits and helps ensure that your lab equipment stays in compliance with local, internal and external regulations. A robust digital repository simplifies document organization—no more downtime wasted searching for an SOP or a service report. Real-time and scheduled reporting, plus alerts about calibration and maintenance deadlines, help you to plan ahead and work more efficiently.

With our Equipment Manager software solution, your lab will be able to keep equipment well maintained, calibrated, and in compliance simply and sustainably, so your team can spend time where it belongs: on science.
