Preventive Maintenance

Starting with our internal training programs, focusing on the World Health Organization (WHO) maintenance manuals and OEM (original equipment manufacturer’s) guidelines, AL-TAR PM technicians work to “prevent” costly equipment failure with detailed checklists and functional testing. Accompany checklists follow current guidelines established by the College of American Pathologists, FDA Code of Federal Regulations 21CFR 820.181, and Clinical Laboratory Improvements Amendments (CLIA) Section 42CFR 493.1254. Don’t wait for the unplanned and expensive repairs to interrupt your workflow, research or production.

Scheduled Care

“As Found” criteria followed by the preventative maintenance, then “as left” data gives our customers full performance information on lab equipment. We work with you to monitor data over time to determine calibration and maintenance interval adjustments to gage the impact of our program in minimizing downtime and maximizing throughput. AL-TAR SCHEDULED CARE services are our most popular option for the customers we serve. And it’s no surprise why…value-based costs offer savings over the full TOTAL CARE plans and meet regulatory demands for both PM and calibrations in one comprehensive package.

Total Care

Your equipment is critical to your manufacturing, research, or overall operations…so is the service. Our TOTAL CARE service plans incorporate the elements of other service level options…calibration, maintenance, repairs, parts, and travel costs to give you the total care needed at one fixed annual cost. You can further minimize the worries and maximize uptime over the long-term with multi-year bundled plans. Whether you are looking for a plan for one instrument, your entire laboratory or the institution you represent, our Total Care agreement plans are designed for you.
