We have positioned ourselves as a global leader in this market by offering our customers a lower point of entry to high-quality, brand name instrumentation. We stock more than 6,000 instruments, ranging from benchtop accessories to robust triple quad mass spectrometers and carry all major OEM brands such as Agilent, Beckman Coulter, Buchi, IKA, Labconco, Thermo, VWR and more. Our dedicated in-house systems engineer team refurbishes, tests and services each instrument to ensure it meets OEM operating specifications. All of our equipment comes with up to a one-year warranty and LIFETIME support – one of the best guarantees in the business.

In 2021, ALT was acquired by Heritage Global Inc. (NASDAQ: HGBL), a renowned asset-based market maker which delivers result-driven solutions to industrial & financial institutions by providing valuation, and lending services for distressed assets. This aids in facilitating the circular economy by diverting useful industrial assets from landfills and operating an ethical supply chain by overseeing post-sale account activity of financial assets.

In 2022, ALT helped more than 300 companies monetize their surplus assets. With warehouses in the Northeast and Northern California and customer service centers in Connecticut and San Diego, ALT is well positioned to work closely in the key biotech hubs throughout the country. We handle equipment from all manufacturers and offer a suite of services including:
• Asset valuation and recovery through outright purchase, consignment, or auction.
• Asset redeployment
• Turnkey project management including: deinstallation, EHS and decontamination, decommissioning, chemical and waste management, packing and shipping
• Ongoing surplus program management.

Our asset recovery strategies go beyond a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. Whether you’re looking to monetize one instrument, liquidate an entire lab or require ongoing asset recovery services, we can help. Our surplus services enable organizations to run their labs more efficiently, mitigate risk through legal and environmental compliance, improve financial positioning and reporting, eliminate warehouse and overflow space and inject working capital back into your lab.
