LabX ( is an online marketplace and a resource to buy and sell laboratory equipment and related high-tech products. Professionals visit the LabX website to buy and sell instruments, accessories, parts, supplies and more and connect with other vendors, end-users, and manufacturers. LabX simply connects buyers and sellers; we do not sell the equipment you find listed.

LabX was originally founded in 1995, with a focus solely on laboratory equipment. The LabX website grew from a simple classified website into a dynamic online auction platform. LabX was originated by Bob Kafato who spent many years as a service and sales rep for scientific products. Specializing in analytical instruments and HPLC, Bob built the LabX platform around his acute knowledge of the industry and a flair for knowing what scientists in the lab were looking for. LabX was developed with a customer-centric mindset and continues to deliver top quality customer experience and a growing marketplace for effective buying and selling.

Over time, LabX expanded as a business-to-business marketplace serving not only the analytical chemistry, clinical laboratory and life science markets, but into related industries including: industrial processing (pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and packaging), healthcare and medical equipment, electronics and test equipment and semiconductor equipment. LabX continues to be a leading website in each of these industries for buyers and sellers to connect.

We pride ourselves in keeping LabX easy to use while being incredibly effective.
