Biomerieux Vitek 2 decontamination?

Hi all!

I don’t have much experience with the lab analyzers but just wanted to run it across you all to see if this sounds absurd or not.  We have a Vitek 2 that needs to be moved to a different location.  Biomerieux wants to charge us $6000 to decontaminate prior to the move…or if we cut a PO for a new piece of equipment they will waive the fee, sounds fishy to me!  Couldn’t our lab staff take care of the decontamination and then just have Biomerieux do the install at the new site?  Or anyone know of a company that could take care of the decontam for us…for a smaller fee?

Thanks in advance!
