Purchase Order Form

Please do not send us the Magnetic Stand of hydraulic micromanipulators.

It is very heavy, has the potential to damage your equipment in transit and increase transportation costs. We do not need it to complete the repair.

If the actual magnetic stand is damaged in some way, please contact us for advice.


When sending your equipment to us the best way is to use the original product box.
If you do not have the original box, please follow our packing guidance below:


Send your equipment for repair & maintenance to:

Narishige International Ltd.
Unit 7, Willow Business Park
Willow Way
SE26 4QP
United Kingdom


A basic administration & handling fee of EUR 40.00 will be charged for each individual product (carrying a model no.) that is sent to us for repair. We do not charge fixed fees for repairs. The cost is derived directly from the work that we deem necessary to return your equipment to good working order. Therefore costs will vary accordingly.

In most cases we can provide you with a Guide Cost for the repair of your product, which will be an approximate 'maximum cost' for a Standard repair.

An accurate Estimated Cost can be provided upon request after we receive your equipment.
We will request your acceptance of the costs in the form of a Purchase Order before starting any repair.
Return shipping costs are calculated at the time we arrange the return of repaired products (see Return Freight & Insurance). You can arrange freight collection if you do not want us to use our own shipping companies.


General turnaround time for a Standard repair is 2-3 weeks. We will inform you of expected turnaround times when we send our Guide or Estimated Cost.
We may be able to provide a non-guaranteed Express service (5-7 days) upon your request, which will be provided free of charge at our discretion. If you have an urgent repair request please make sure to inform us as soon as possible.

We have a limited amount of equipment available to loan whilst your product is being repaired. Contact us for availability.
