For a period of two (2) years from delivery, Inlabtec guarantees that the manufactured and delivered devices are free from material and processing defects that affect the functionality of the device for the intended use. It applies:
1. within the warranty period, Inlabtec shall remedy all defects recognised by Inlabtec that are demonstrably due to material or manufacturing defects. At Inlabtec’s discretion, the warranty will be fulfilled by repairing, replacing defective parts or replacing the device.

However, if the unit needs to be replaced, the warranty period is 2 years from the date of replacement. Replaced parts become the property of Inlabtec. Transport costs, risks and damages are not covered by Inlabtec.
2. The warranty does not cover damage or defects resulting from improper commissioning, connection, improper handling or treatment, repair attempts by unauthorised persons or failure to observe the operating instructions. Furthermore, the warranty is void if repairs are not carried out by Inlabtec or a service partner authorised by Inlabtec, or if original parts have not been used. Further claims, in particular claims for compensation for consequential harm caused by a defect, etc., are excluded to the extent permitted.
3. warranty service is usually provided by the service organisation in the country where the equipment was sold. An obligation to honour the guarantee only exists if the device complies with the applicable technical regulations of the country in which the guarantee claim is made and is operated in accordance with these regulations.
4. warranty services in Switzerland: The warranty services provided by Inlabtec in Switzerland include all costs (material, labour) for the removal of all defects recognised by Inlabtec.
