About Us


For over 27 years, Rankin has supplied refurbished anatomic pathology lab equipment to thousands of university, hospital, research, industrial, commercial and in-office laboratories that perform diagnostic testing and research.

Rankin offers a comprehensive line of refurbished and new histological equipment, and as well, provides equipment PM and repair service, depot refurbishment and repair, replacement parts, equipment installation, operator training, and service agreements.

Rankin believes in supplying only the highest quality refurbished equipment and we do this by infusing more time and replacement parts into the refurbishment process than other companies in our industry. We call our refurbishing process – The Rankin Extreme Makeover.

Rankin is well known throughout the industry for our refurbished equipment’s unmatched aesthetic quality and functional durability.

The special attention to the needs of our clients and trusted third-party service providers is responsible for the outstanding reputation we have in the industry.

Rankin’s glowing customer testimonials and reviews clearly demonstrate the satisfaction and trust our customers have in our company and products.

Best of all, Rankin clients save tons of money by purchasing Rankin-refurbished equipment at 50 to 80% below the pricing of new equipment.
