We take care of everything.

At Sakura Services we understand these needs and can offer you the best solutions. We not only supply you with high-quality instruments and consumables, we also give you excellent services that meet your needs.

The Workflow Consultancy enables your laboratory to gain more insight into the current process to identify bottlenecks and consult on improvements. Our aim is to help improve the process of the histopathology lab by applying Lean principles. This enables you to do more with the same resources, while improving your results and quality of work.

Our Leasing Solution supports your laboratory in benefitting from the latest technology solutions, enabling you to deal with day-to-day challenges without high-capital investments that might be difficult to obtain. For a single cost per test or a monthly fee, Sakura takes care of your instrument, service agreements and your consumables. This fixed fee puts you in control of your lab budget. Then know exactly how much you will be charged.

In order to guarantee a smooth daily operation in your lab, it’s crucial that your instruments are reliably operational and continuously available. With a Platinum, Gold or Silver Service Agreement, we can meet your needs and budget. A fixed periodic fee gives you more control of your budget, as costs are then predictable. We take care of your instruments; you focus on your patients.

Well-trained people work more efficiently and perform better. That’s why we offer on-site customer training on your instruments to optimise results. We ensure that your staff acquire in-depth knowledge of the Sakura instruments and consumables, empowering them to use the instruments to their fullest potential. Additionally, trainees receive certification after the training, in order to meet the ISO 15189 standards.

Stock management is crucial as it maximises your uptime. Our Express Delivery enables you to order urgently needed products* in small quantities and have them delivered within 1 day. If you order by 5 p.m. CET, you receive door-to-door delivery the next work day for a fixed fee. *Conditions and exceptions apply Only applies to consumables and accessories 20 kg measured by weight; hand carried Hazardous goods have a longer delivery time.

When you utilise remote monitoring, we can maximise your system uptime. If an error occurs, we can see exactly what has gone wrong and which replacement part your instrument will need. This way, we can send an engineer to you quickly and with the correct spare part(s) in hand. You save time while your operational continuity remains supported.
