If You Need Some Lab Equipment. . .
. . .now's a heck of a time to buy. I just noticed this in my e-mail - thanks to Pfizer, and their appetite for closing down research buildings, you now have the opportunity to buy massive piles of once-useful instruments at auction.
Don't let the fact that a massive drug company has no need for all this equipment put you off. You might be able to find a use for it! It's good stuff: high-field NMRs, LC/mass spec machines of all sorts, liquid handlers, robotics platforms, cell culture apparatus, spectrophotometers, microscopes, centrifuges. . .the list is a long one. Removal of evil spirits is, as far as I can tell, not included. But otherwise, there's everything you'd need to start a productive research company, except the employees. And there are plenty of those on the market, too, you know.
