status: August 2023
According to EU Directive 2002/96/EC of the European Parliament and of the EU Council for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), or the revised version of the EU directive 2012/19/EU and the resulting German Electrical and Electronic (ElektroG), there is an obligation to collect old electrical equipment put on the market after August 2005 to collect, treat and dispose of waste electrical and electronic equipment put on the market after and to finance this.
Waste electrical and electronic equipment is defined as electrical and electronic equipment that has become waste. These do not belong in the household waste, but should be fed to special collection or take-back systems.
According to §7a ElektroG, every manufacturer/distributor is obliged to create a reasonable possibility for the return of old electronic equipment. At this point, we would therefore like to inform you about our take-back options for the disposal of our large medical devices.
If you no longer wish to use the laboratory equipment purchased from us after a certain point in time (e.g. irreparable damage or system change), you can return this old equipment to us for professional disposal. In this case, the purchaser bears the costs for the return shipment. Costs for disposal are not incurred by the buyer.
