Don't compromise your results through lack of maintenance

Lab Equipment Maintenance

Like all machines, they work better if regularly serviced. Stainers and tissue processors serviced and maintained by HES. Our experience of histology and engineering gives us a unique understanding of the staining and tissue processing operations. Drawing on this experience HES can offer application support as well as providing fault finding and preventative maintenance.

Histology Cassette & Slide Printers

We offer service support for printers with software support included. HES can support your Nice Label software package. Designing new forms and labels, integrating barcodes and transferring data to new PC’s.


Microscope Servicing

HES can provide instrument service and calibration. Our service of microscopes is comprehensive.  We can service all makes and models working with a network of instrumentation engineers with 50 years combined experience in the servicing of microscopes. We offer calibration with UKAS certified equipment and corresponding calibration reports. We also have an extensive network with all major manufacturers supporting us with spare parts and instrument drawings for correct service of the equipment.


Engineering Workshop/Repair/

Manufacturing Facilities:

HES can offer a fully equipped engineering workshop with capabilities for machining and welding in all types of metals. This gives a unique capability to offer re-working of older parts on instruments no longer supported, new bespoke parts can be manufactured to keep your important equipment working into the future. Bespoke engineered solutions for your unique projects, from initial design concept through working models.


Maintenance Contracts

All your equipment will work better and more reliably if regularly serviced. Take advantage of our fixed travel costs, no minimum order level and fixed costs for multi year service contracts.


HES can fully support your microtome instrumentation. We offer service contracts and one off maintenance visits. Where possible we service the instruments to factory specification and disassemble the instrument, cleaning and re-lubricating the micrometer mechanism. With more than 20 years experience on these instruments we can quickly diagnose faults, restoring optimal sectioning performance.



Both routine and research cryostats serviced and maintained. As with the microtomes we support disassembling the instrument then cleaning and re-lubricating the micrometer mechanism on every service visit. Our experience in fault finding on cryostats means we can offer advice on knife holder geometry and application support for sectioning.

Call HES today and let us help you keep your lab equipment fully maintained and serviced.
