ALE is a Woman-owned Small Business


“The people at Atlantic Lab Equipment are extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. We were able to do an on-site inspection of the instrument we were interested in purchasing, and when we arrived we found the instrument already cleaned, properly maintained, and running demo experiments. It made the evaluation much easier and really strengthened the confidence we had in buying a used liquid handler. One year later, the instrument is still running great, we saved thousands of dollars, and we now have a great relationship with a quality company in ALE.”

“We purchased a Tecan robotic liquid handler and a PlateLoc plate sealer through Atlantic Lab Equipment when we expanded our next-generation sequencing capabilities in our lab. Our decision to entrust ALE with our equipment needs was in part due to the cost savings but also because of the extensive technical support services they offer. With complex instrumentation like robotic liquid handlers, having access to highly trained support specialists like Jenn at ALE is critical. They have made good on their commitment to our technical needs by being ever ready to assist us with questions that invariably arise.”

— Liz F.

“Atlantic Lab Equipment has drastically improved the operational workflow of our lab, specializing in Toxicology, by fully automating the sample preparation process. Now our lab is able to stand out in this very competitive market by committing to a shorter turnaround time. ALE has provided excellent support in the areas of competitive pricing, excellent quality of equipment purchased, and have stood behind their word in making necessary repairs to meet the promised quality. Their work, commitment, and integrity have been a major factor in my recommendation of ALE to be a solid and reliable vendor and experts in their field of business.”
