Thermo Fisher Scientific™ designs, manufactures and sells certain centrifugation products incorporating advanced composites technology. We are the exclusive and sole provider of this limited warranty (the “warranty”) for the Products offered at the time of purchase.
Thermo Scientific™ Fiberlite™ composite rotors (Products) are manufactured to be direct replacements of conventional rotors and to run in certain existing models of Thermo Scientific centrifuges. Composite rotors are designed and tested to specifications exceeding those published by most of the manufacturers of these centrifuges. Rotors manufactured of advanced composite materials have performance characteristics and maintenance requirements that are different from rotors of metallic construction. The owners are strongly urged to read the instruction manual to familiarize themselves with these requirements. Failure to follow the instructions may void the limited warranty provided below.
Subject to the conditions specified below, all Fiberlite centrifuge rotors are warranted against defects of material and workmanship which develop for fifteen (15) years (“Warranty Period”) after delivery by us or by an authorized distributor, provided that investigation and factory inspection by Thermo Fisher Scientific discloses that such defect developed under normal and proper use, such use including, but not limited to, speeds not in excess of the maximum speed of the rotor (properly reduced for certain fluid densities, fluid gradients, tube assemblies, and adapters) as specified in the instruction manual. Thermo Fisher Scientific will correct either by repair or, at its discretion, by replacement any defects of material or workmanship which develop within the Warranty Period. Furthermore, should a centrifuge be damaged due to the failure of a Fiberlite rotor covered by this limited warranty, Thermo Fisher Scientific will, at its discretion, repair or replace the rotor and will assume the cost paid for repairing the damaged centrifuge.
1. This warranty may not be assigned, extended or otherwise transferred to a third party without the prior written consent of Thermo Fisher Scientific.
2. This warranty covers rotor only and Thermo Fisher Scientific shall not be liable for damage to metal component parts, accessories, or ancillary supplies including but not limited to knobs, hubs, buckets, seals, o-rings, bottles and tubes, bottle and tube caps, bottle and tube adapters, or bottle and tube contents.
3. This warranty is void if the rotor is operated or maintained in a manner contrary to the instructions in the User’s manual for either the rotor or the centrifuge, or if the rotor is modified without the written permission of Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Any rotor claimed to be defective must, if requested by Thermo Fisher Scientific, be returned to the factory, transportation charges prepaid, and will be returned to the owner transportation charges collect unless the product is found to be defective, in which case Thermo Fisher Scientific will pay all transportation charges.
