02/01/12 | RORO offer BMSS members some equipment for spares or repair

RORO send out the following email to BMSS members:-

Dear All,

Happy new year!  Just a quick email to let you all know about some mass spec equipment that is up for grabs.  Due to a lack of sufficient funding our charity has had to relocate to a much smaller premises.  We only have room to store complete functional instrumentation and therefore have quite a large stock of incomplete instruments for spares/repair.

The equipment is all available for free on a first come first served basis, the only catch is that we have to have all of the equipment removed by the end of this week.

Financial donations welcome!
