dc.description.abstract The choice of laboratory equipment must take into account national regulations and the technical premises that determine the requirements for its appropriate use. The more complex an instrument is, the more the user will depend on the support of a supplier for maintenance; it is therefore pertinent to foresee the magnitude of the costs that may be involved in its use. Quite often, the costs for use and maintenance of an instrument will exceed the costs of purchase. It is also important to foresee the problems that may arise in case of failure of the instrument. Sometimes it may be advisable to purchase an instrument from a company that offers a guaranteed service, instead of another, perhaps cheaper, instrument for which a local maintenance service is not available. The operating manual describing the function, installation, and use of an instru­ ment should be provided free by the supplier and read by the user prior to any purchase. This avoids any subsequent misunderstanding. For example, it should be assured that an adequate power supply, as recommended for the instrument, is available locally, otherwise the purchase may be useless, or the cost of adaptation will increase the effective purchase price considerably. en_US
