Who We Are

New Life Scientific is a dealer of used lab equipment for research and production environments in the life sciences and biotech industries. Founded in 2014, we've served thousands of satisfied customers. They may be as large as renowned research universities and multi-billion dollar biotech companies to scrappy start-ups and guys doing cool stuff in their garages.

We understand how much labs rely on their equipment, so we work to ensure our products are truly beneficial to our customers and their experience with us is pleasant. We do this by:

  • Staffing in-house technical talent to quality-assure our products.
  • Offering 90-Day Warranties on all equipment, along with after-sales support.
  • Maintaining 24-hour or less response times on customer requests.

Frequently Asked Questions

What industries do you serve?

The equipment we offer is primarily focused towards biotech research and development, but our instruments are useful in a vast array of scientific research fields.

How long have you been in business?

New Life Scientific was established in the summer of 2014.

How big is your company? What is it like?

We currently have a staff of 17 employees, including multiple technicians for inspection, testing, and repairs. Our crew also consists of marketers, IT personnel, researchers, and administrative staff.

Our facility is approximately 25,000 square feet spanning an office, technical shop, and separate warehouse.

Where are you located?

We're located in Cridersville, Ohio, which has a population of less than 2000 and offers the idyllic small-town lifestyle.

Children can be seen playing on the sidewalks and couples walking down the street. No big skyscrapers or rush-hour traffic for us!

What is the culture of your company like?

Relaxed and friendly. You can find baked goods and other foods shared in the break room, and every few months we’ll all go out for dinner together.

There’s less than 20 of us here, so we all know each other fairly well. We try to extend this laid-back approachability to our customers — the buying experience shouldn’t be a hassle for you.

What makes you different?

It's no secret that buying pre-owned equipment carries a bit of stress. We don't think it has to be that way, though. You see, one of the main reasons why buyers are wary of used products is vague descriptions and poor photo quality. Without any substantial detail, the buyer doesn't know what to expect.

That's why we make an effort to set ourselves apart with detailed listings and professional photography. You deserve a clear explanation of what testing and important repairs we have done on our products so you know exactly what you're getting every time.

Ultimately, we aim to act with honesty and integrity. We don't exaggerate our abilities, and we honor our warranty to the letter.
