Medical and Laboratory

As the medical industry continues to look for ways to cut expenses without sacrificing service, many medical equipment manufacturers, hospitals, and laboratories are turning to Arch Enterprises as a partner to refine their medical device scrap. Facilities working with precious metal bearing items such as electrophysiology catheters, angioplasty guide wires, and electrophoresis electrodes may have precious metal in and around the facility. Similarly, medical labs often utilize tools and other items made from precious metal. 

Arch Enterprises can even recover precious metal dust from air filters, vacuum bags, and wipes for companies that generate precious metal particles in their process.  Here is a list of some of the more common medical and lab related items that we refine:
