The instruments here at Buck Scientific are really made for those that roll up their sleeves to get to work. The 210VGP is a workhorse which stoically operates perfectly day in and day out under less than perfect conditions. This AA finds it home in the most challenging environments for decades with the smallest operating cost of any AAS in the world. You see, our instruments are engineered by service engineers, if you can change a light bulb, you can fix a buck AA yourself with the cost of the part. There is no need to call the service tech, no service contracts are necessary. Furthermore, the buck AA design is light enough (60 Lbs.) for one person to handle, and small enough to fit on an 18" deep bench top.
