Welcome to Richmond Scientific

Richmond Scientific is the leading supplier of used scientific equipment and used lab equipment in the UK.

We’ve been trading for over twenty-five years and supply used laboratory equipment and scientific instrumentation to manufacturing facilities, research labs, contract labs as well as to many researchers, clinicians and innovators in businesses, schools and university settings. We also have fantastic relationships with many overseas companies who trust us to provide them with great lab equipment at a fair price.

However, we don’t just sell scientific equipment – we understand that as your lab develops, some equipment becomes surplus to your requirements. We specialise in ensuring your benches are clear of unused and unwanted equipment so that your lab can remain at its optimum efficiency. 

We have an extensive range of second-hand scientific equipment at all times and if we don’t have what you are looking for, we are known for being the company that can unearth most types of scientific instrumentation at a reasonable price.
