About Us

Company History

Colco began in 1993, assisting one client sell a wide range of laboratory equipment, including balances, incubators, HPLC, microscopes etc. Since then we have developed an international reputation for helping end-users, hospitals and ‘dealers’ buy and sell good quality Laboratory and Medical equipment.

In 1998 Colco became a Limited Company and we are now established as one of Europe’s foremost locators of quality instrumentation. We are constantly looking to develop new markets for sourcing and marketing the best of ‘used’ equipment and are keen to work closely with new contacts. If you have surplus equipment or are in need of good quality equipment get in touch today!

Our Service

Our principle activity is to bring Buyers and Sellers together for a small
fee – full details on request.

It is the responsibility of both Buyer and Seller to ensure they are happy with a transaction before agreeing to proceed, and that all technical aspects and payment terms are to their satisfaction prior to final sale/purchase. We are here to advise on this process and assist with communication, negotiation on price etc.

Colin Shandley Bsc – Director of Colco Scientific

Colin ShandleyAfter my Honours Degree in Applied & Human Biology from Aston University, Birmingham in 1988 I worked for a multi-national company developing an automated immunoassay system as well as a number of biochemistry tests. I then started my own business in 1993 and have worked to develop it over the years into what you see here. As a committed Christian I seek to run the company with honesty, integrity and in a way that pleases God.
