All AnaPico instruments are covered by a 24 month return-to-manufacturer repair warranty for parts and labor from the date of shipment against defective materials and/or workmanship provided the product has at all times been subjected to proper use, handling and storage.
AnaPico shall not be responsible for defects that have been caused by natural wear and tear, willful damage, negligence, force majeure, and abnormal working conditions or failure to follow AnaPico’s spoken or written guidelines as to the storage, installation, commissioning, use or maintenance of the products or (if there are none) good trade practice; or the customer alters or repairs such goods without the written consent of AnaPico. Opening the instrument and/or breaking warranty seals will void the warranty. Extended warranty (when available) is subject to the same warranty policy.
AnaPico may choose to perform the warranty services on its authorized facilities or on the site of the customer who must grant AnaPico the free access.
7. Returning a Faulty Unit
If the unit becomes faulty within 24 months and has not been subject to abuse, then you may return the unit to AnaPico for repair free of charge. AnaPico may provide a replacement product in lieu of repair, at its own discretion.
You must contact AnaPico or an authorized distributor for a Return Material Authorization Number (RMA Number) before returning a product under warranty.
Overseas customers should describe returns for customs purposes as “Customer-Owned Equipment for Repair under Warranty”. AnaPico accepts no responsibility for units returned without a RMA Number.
