Labexchange is the world leading cross-manufacturer place of procurement for lab equipment!

For more than 35 years Labexchange has stood for high technical reliability and comprehensive service. Users in analytical laboratories, the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, universities and chemical-analytical institutes rely on the faultless and tested equipment technology from a wide range of products.

From the Swabian Alb to every corner of the globe. The first chapter of our success story was written in the mountainous Swabian Alb region of Germany. Today, our story extends far beyond our borders and around the world.

At the heart of this success is a strong father-and-son bond, which is now ushering in a new era with the arrival of Maximilian Kuster. With Maximilian Kuster joining the company, the family tradition lives on and, better still, is enriched with fresh ideas and a new perspective. Maximilian Kuster brings not only his expertise to the company, but also his passion for innovation and customer focus. The father-son duo of Wolfgang and Maximilian Kuster represents the beating heart of Labexchange, embodying continuity, reliability and a strong corporate culture. Together with their dedicated team, they have ensured Labexchange is strongly associated with quality and service within the industry.

By buying and selling high-quality used laboratory equipment, Labexchange not only contributes to sustainability, but also offers laboratories around the world cost-effective solutions of the highest quality.

Transforming an idea to the world market leader

The company was founded in 1989 in Burladingen, Swabia. Since then, the company has grown steadily and now employs over 30 people. With agencies all over the world, the successful concept of company founder and managing director Dr Wolfgang Kuster still proves its worth today.

Through versatile knowledge, extensive expertise and decades of experience in dealing with used laboratory and analysis systems, Labexchange is not only a reliable and competent partner, but also the global market leader. It is thanks to the consistently high quality and diverse guarantees that Labexchange has become the number one in the industry and a very successful global player. Known until 2012 as "Laborgerätebörse Handelsgesellschaft für Analysensysteme mbH", the company was renamed. The new company name "Labexchange - Die Laborgerätebörse GmbH", accepted by the responsible Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Reutlingen, underlines the company's market leadership.

The whole world of laboratory equipment

Within the group of companies Labexchange - Die Laborgerätebörse GmbH sells used and new laboratory equipment and laboratory furniture. Customers have the widest possible choice of new and used laboratory and analysis systems of all manufacturer brands. This selection is the result of the numerous private and business suppliers who sell their no longer required laboratory equipment to and via Labexchange.

In order to do justice to another cornerstone of the holistic customer-oriented company policy, the company's own service company, Labexchange Service GmbH, was founded in October 2010. This company is the manifested commitment to qualified, technical service and a completely risk-free purchase of laboratory equipment from Labexchange. All laboratory and analysis equipment can be used immediately and is delivered with a service report certifying its functionality. In addition, Labexchange Service GmbH offers over 65,000 accessories, spare parts and consumables from all manufacturers.

Labexchange is the only company in the used laboratory equipment industry committed to sustainability by establishing its own non-profit Labexchange Foundation. This foundation supports many charitable projects and awards the Labexchange Award annually.

The Labexchange Group is complete thanks to Labstribute GmbH, which was founded in 2016 and auctions off laboratories with all their components at very short notice and without great expense for the seller.

The group of companies unites the areas of equipment trading and service under one roof, which makes it possible to support the customer in all matters from one source.

As an independent supplier with broad experience, Labexchange is not committed to any brand or manufacturer. You can therefore be sure that you will receive independent and needs-based advice.

The brand Labexchange

A corporate brand such as Labexchange offers both the company and its customers security, trust and orientation.

The brand unites all parties involved, therefore creating a corporate unit. Labexchange’s brand profi le, or its DNA, is made up of four brand values – experience – diversity – thoroughness – reliability. All in all, the Labexchange brand presents a uniform image. These values constitute our brand identity and have been actively lived on a daily basis since 1989.


From a small company in Swabian Burladingen to market leader – this is the story of Labexchange’s success. Since 1989, Labexchange has built up a wealth of experience at national and international level, can call upon considerable technical expertise and is extremely competent when it comes to laboratory and analysis equipment. Its experience is demonstrated in a most impressive manner: Labexchange discovered and tapped into the market for used laboratory and analysis equipment in 1989 and has transferred its knowledge of the German market onto the international stage. Labexchange was therefore the fi rst company to internationalise the market. Since then, Labexchange has developed and had a considerable formative infl uence on the market. Labexchange can fall back on a wealth of experience, is continuing its learning process day by day and steadily building on this potential.


In order to satisfy the wishes of its customers, Labexchange offers a wide and diverse laboratory and analysis equipment portfolio. This includes, for example, general analytics through spectroscopy and chromatography down to laboratory furniture. This diversity is refl ected in its huge selection of laboratory and analysis devices. Labexchange sells not only new devices, but above all second-hand
equipment from all manufacturers and in all price segments. Customers can hire or lease laboratory and analysis devices. Labexchange operates entirely independently of specific manufacturers, thereby generating a broad product range and a high level of expertise. Its social commitment, too, is broadly based: Labexchange supports social projects in the Third World through donations of laboratory and analysis equipment. In addition, donations to local medical projects help to strengthen the region. This social commitment, particularly in the medical sector, has been consolidated by the establishment of the company’s own foundation. The Wolfgang-Kuster-Stiftung champions social and sustainable projects.


Labexchange’s highest goal is customer satisfaction. A thorough approach to things plays a pivotal role here. The precision which customers expect from their laboratory and analysis equipment is refl ected in the thoroughness which characterises day-to-day activities at Labexchange. Here at Labexchange, thoroughness means thinking one step ahead. That’s why customers are offered an “all-round carefree” package. Our thoroughness is demonstrated by the following: Prior to sale, devices are carefully inspected and analysed by Labexchange Service GmbH. Customers are offered a complete package: from independent, tailor-made advice, through analysis and sale processing down to delivery or collection. With each purchased device, customers receive a copy of the operating instructions. These are digitalised manually for this purpose. Customers therefore have online access to the correct manual at all times.


Labexchange is always on hand to help its customers with any questions or concerns they may have. Special customer wishes and requests are responded to with dedication and fl exibility. Labexchange is pleased to be of assistance to its customers and offer its support in any way it can. The above-average safeguards and guarantees offered and realised by Labexchange are simply not to be found in the portfolios of its competitors. That, too, makes Labexchange a reliable partner.
