About Us

The Rankin Story

For 25 years Rankin has supplied refurbished anatomic pathology equipment to thousands of university, hospital, research, industrial, commercial and in-office laboratories that perform diagnostic and research testing and analysis.

Rankin provides a comprehensive line of refurbished and new equipment, as well as providing service, depot repair, parts, installation, training, and service agreements.

Rankin believes in producing only high-quality refurbished equipment which comes from spending more time and effort on the equipment than other companies in our industry. We call it our Rankin Extreme Makeover. Refurbished equipment from Rankin clearly stands above the rest of the pack due to its unmatched aesthetic quality and functional durability.

Either by coincidence or design, we fit Bing’s definition of the name Rankin perfectly, “of the best quality or the highest standard.”

Rankin’s special attention to the needs of our clients and trusted third party service providers has built our reputation in the industry. And our clients save tens of thousands of dollars by purchasing equipment at 50 to 80% below new prices.


  1. Premium Refurbishing Quality – Our standardized refurbishing processes enable Rankin Biomedical Corporation to produce like-new equipment that is top quality, both aesthetically and functionally.
  2. Exceptional Prices & Value – buying Rankin Biomedical Corporation’s professionally refurbished equipment is a wise alternative to buying more expensive new lab equipment, since the only difference is price, not quality.
  3. Best Industry Knowledge & Experience – our product development team weeds out inferior products so you don’t get burned buying junk. Our team is the best in the business.
  4. Rest-Assured Product Reliability – only equipment brands and models that have been field-tested and deemed to be reliable are refurbished and sold by Rankin Biomedical Corporation.
  5. Comprehensive Range of Products – we carry a full line of refurbished and new products that cover most every step of anatomic pathology tissue processing – from grossing to microscopy.
  6. Friendly and Efficient Customer Service – our customer and sales staff are courteous and attentive to your needs – ready to give you answers to all of your questions.
  7. Consultative Services – call us for reliable professional product advice and find out the best solutions to your specific needs.
  8. Rock Solid Warranties – full one year parts and labor warranties on our fully refurbished equipment and new equipment. Limited warranties on international sales and un-refurbished or partially refurbished equipment.
  9. Extended Service Contracts – sleep comfortably at night knowing that Rankin Biomedical Corporation has your back on keeping your equipment downtime to a minimum with prompt repairs and PMs.
  10. Guaranteed Customer Satisfaction – you will appreciate our attentive and knowledgeable communication. Our high repeat-customer rate reflects our customer’s loyalty and long-term satisfaction.
