If you have invested in medical imaging equipment, it goes without saying that you expect to make the most out of it by extending its lifespan; either for more use or better market value when you sell it.

C-Arm Warranty & Service Contract: What is Included?

Posted by Alex Silbergleit on Tue, Jun 6, 2017 @ 13:06 PM

For the past 24 years, Atlantis has been selling medical imaging equipment across all modalities. The quality of our equipment, and more specifically our C-Arms, is known across the industry. As important as a quality C-Arm refurbishment is, the warranty that accompanies the refurbishment is equally important. We offer warranties with all our refurbished C-Arms. How could we not? If we didn’t offer warranties, it would be like us saying that we don’t trust the continued functionality of our C-Arms after refurbishment. And that simply is not true. All warranties and service contracts come with full coverage on all parts (including glassware) and labor. We want our customers to feel assured that in the unfortunate event that there is an issue with their C-Arm, they will not be financially responsible.

The show was another great success!
