Buying Used

Are you considering a Used KORR Metabolic Analyzer?

KORR products are designed to be the most durable and reliable desk top analyzers on the market. Even the highest use facilities can count on years of accurate testing. But as with any piece of precise measurement equipment, it must be cared for properly by the user and maintained by authorized factory personnel to insure proper functioning.

Considering the Overall Value of a Used KORR Analyzer

Do you intend to print your results?
Look at the back of the unit.  If the unit has a parallel printer cable connector, it will only be able to connect to the printer that was originally provided with the unit.
Has the unit been properly serviced?
On the back of the unit is a seal that reads, “warranty void if seal is broken.” If this seal is broken, be aware that the customer has opened the unit and may have tampered with the electronics. This would be highly suspicious.
When was unit last serviced?

KORR’s best value are units sold in a Quick Start Kit which add many advantages for our valued customers. These include substantial discounts on service and access to technical support from our highly qualified customer support personnel. Discounts, warranties and technical support contracts ARE NOT transferable from the original owner. Consider the value of technical support. When buying used, you forfeit access to KORR’s expert staff for questions regarding the functioning of your machine, interpretation of results, etc.

KORR products require replacement of the oxygen sensor and recalibration about every 20 months. The green sticker on the back of the unit will indicate when the unit was last calibrated.

If purchasing used equipment, it will become necessary at some point to replace the O₂ sensor in your unit. Pricing for service is listed below as compared to the discounted prices offered with the QuickStart kit:
