CHELMSFORD, Mass. — Spectro Scientific is offering its MicroLab oil analyzer for auto repair, quick oil change and fleet repair shops to provide a comprehensive diagnosis of the condition of the oil, the engine and the transmission of a vehicle in less than 15 minutes.
Spectro Scientific specializes in analytical instrumentation and software for machine condition monitoring, including oil and fuel analysis instruments.
"Oil analysis converts an oil change from a loss leader to a profit maker," Mike Phillips, owner of Flextune auto repair outlet in Bloomington, Ind., said in a press release.
"Even more importantly, it enables me to give my customers the information they need to make the right decision on whether to invest money in an older vehicle. So they keep coming back and bring their friends and family."
MicroLab said it integrated three laboratory instruments in a single package to measure key properties for oil chemistry, viscosity and concentration of wear metals and sources of contamination in engine and transmission oils.
The MicroLab has a computerized system which translates all of the analytical data into a diagnosis and maintenance recommendations. The oil analyzer is designed so that a service technician can run the test and interpret the results, the company said.
"In summary, the fast and simple oil analysis provided by MicroLab provides auto repair and quick oil change shops with a new source of revenue while increasing shop repair business by giving customers the confidence to continue investing in aging vehicles," the company said.
