Mission statement and sustainability

FORNAX TECHNOLOGIES professionally overhauls previously owned laboratory equipment and is your partner and provider for laboratory automation and project management. Since the company was founded in 2011, we have been planning, developing and installing customised and affordable solutions together with our customers. As a medium-sized, family-led company you can expect us to show particular commitment for your specific issues.

FORNAX TECHNOLOGIES is committed to the principle of sustainability and ecological efficiency in the field of high-quality laboratory equipment used for medical analytics and research and thus the reuse of this equipment. As a provider and processor of complex, high-quality and durable laboratory equipment, it is therefore our goal to cooperate closely with our customers to recognise their needs and satisfy them through our services.

Our technicians and programmers carefully perform the reconstructions to ensure the quality of the restored equipment in line with the relevant manufacturer specifications.
Once they have been refurbished, our products fully comply with the product requirements from the relevant manufacturer – this guarantees the quality and durability of the products while protecting valuable resources and our environment.


The team from FORNAX TECHNOLOGIES is composed of constructors, technicians and application specialists, who also have many years of experience in laboratory work, laboratory automation and natural sciences (molecular biology, chemistry). Regular training continually extends the competence of our employees and the refurbished laboratory equipment offered.

Demand and efficiency

Contact with our customers when performing maintenance and service work and regular communication with the users enable FORNAX TECHNOLOGIES to continue to develop.
Careful analysis by our experts in the event of equipment failure and when performing repairs is a central aspect of our work and keeps the costs for restoring equipment functionality as low as possible. We regularly reflect on our activities so that we continually improve to meet the needs of our growing and discerning customer base.
