How to Sell Cath HeaderIf you intend to sell your cath lab system, there is a lot of information the market will want to know about the system, its accessories, and how well you've maintained it during the time you've owned it.

The four steps below will walk you through the process of finding all the crucial information you need to move your old lab and make way for your next solution.



Compile

This step is pretty straightforward: gather all the pertinent information about your system and its features and list it. These are the facts that will draw the initial interest of potential buyers and answer their first wave of questions about the system.

  • Make
  • Model
  • System date of manufacture
  • II or detector date of manufacture
  • Tube date of manufacture
  • Accessories
  • Upgrades

Capture

Take photos of the system and its components to show their overall condition. One of these should be a “glamour shot” of the main operating components (gantry, table, monitor boom) together. Cabinets and accessories should also be photographed.

It's also important to capture close-up photos of the tags/labels on the major components. The examples below come from the gantry of a Philips FD20. Be sure to include:

  • Gantry
  • Table
  • Tube
  • II or detector

Disclose

Once you've noted the basic details and features of your system and all of the items that will go along with it, you should note any outstanding items (good or bad) from your system's service history. If possible, refer to your service provider's field service reports. Include things like:

  • Install dates for major parts replacements (tubes, IIs, detectors, acquisition computers, etc.)
  • Preventative maintenance dates
  • Notes on significant events (flooding, power surges, upgrades, etc.)

Valuate

This step may already be close to completion – you found Block Imaging! With the information and photos above as our reference, we'd love to discuss your system's value and help you learn what to expect from the sale of your cath lab on the secondary market. We're also consistently buying cath labs for both refurbishment and inclusion in our cath lab inventory as well as to harvest components our parts inventory.

The Takeaway

Whether you sell to another end user, a broker, or even a parts dealer, the more detailed information you can provide up front, the more accurate the assessment of your system will be. Start things off with lots of photos and lots of documentation. If you're ready to find out your sytem's value today, use the button below to start the conversation.
