A Few of Our Many Satisfied Customers

“I have worked with Southeast Pathology Instrument Services for many years in several different environments.  Whether its service and preventive maintenance, quality used instruments, or new lab set up, I know that I can always count on their team for fast, professional service with a smile.  Even when things don’t go as expected for a repair, the Southeast team handles it with calm and great sense of humor.  They do whatever is needed to keep their customers up and running with minimal downtime and impact on patient care.   I won’t use any other company for used instruments and service.”

Thank you, Marc Rabinowitz and Southeast Pathology Instrument Services for everything you have done for us over this last year. Even starting from a strong microscopy program base and having a Dept. of Labor grant, we faced significant challenges in bringing our new Histotech training program to life and obtaining working modern equipment. Our first cohort of students has benefited enormously from your advice, good prices and quality equipment.

Southeast Pathology has been instrumental and outstanding in bringing our vision of a working training program to life. You have been tremendous! Thank you for your attention to detail, intelligence, genuine and consistent communication, and careful discussion of what we could and should get with our available budget to most benefit our students’ training. From your deep knowledge of histotechnology and your tireless efforts on our behalf to your upbeat attitude and friendly manner, we simply could not have asked for a better histotech equipment supplier.”

“I purchased a microtome, an H&E stainer and a coverslipper from Southeast Pathology Instrument Service and I really had a very good experience. Not only do they have a great choice of equipment, the equipment I got was spotless! I found the information they provide excellent and helpful. All the people I interacted with from my first sales visit to the install and some troubleshooting on the phone has been extremely pleasant. They are all courteous and very knowledgeable and engaged in client satisfaction. I will not hesitate to purchase other equipment from them in the future, I got only great and personalized service.

Thank you for making it easy for us!”

“Michael Dietrich and his company have been servicing Histology equipment for me since I arrived in South Carolina in 2003.  They have always been there when I’ve needed them and always do an excellent job repairing and performing PM’s on equipment.

We now use Southeast Pathology Instrument Service to maintain our equipment here at Northside Hospital.  Again they always come in a timely manner and fix our equipment when others have been unable to do so.  They do not come day after day to run up service calls like others have done.

Besides being the nicest people you will hope to meet they are professional, honest and efficient.  They always do what is best for the customer and do an excellent job.  If I sound prejudice I am.  To find this type of honest and friendly service this day and time is not easy.”

“I manage a lab at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, division of Nuclear Medicine.  I purchased a Leica cryostat from Southeast Pathology Instrument Service and I found everyone to be extremely friendly, knowledgeable and more than willing to help me with my application needs and technical issues.”

Thanks so much to everyone at Southeast Pathology!

“Whether it has been equipment sales or service, Mike and his team at Southeast Pathology have been prompt, thorough, professional and considerate.  His pricing is fair and his products are reliable.  Most of our laboratory is equipped with his machinery and we kick ourselves for not purchasing all of our equipment through him.  Additionally when things have gone down, he has been able to fix them the same day or provide a suitable replacement.  He has meant both the success and survival of our laboratory.”

“We previously purchased a refurbished Ultracut from your company and I wanted to let you know that the user is getting beautiful results from it. He is using it on a lab bench top instead of floation table and he is still getting silver, non-chattered sections! Thank you so much for your assistance with this microtome. “

“I have bought 2 tissue processors from Michael and his team at Southeast Pathology over the last few years.  Unfortunately, one of our processors was damaged upon receipt, and it was obvious this occurred during shipment.  I immediately contacted Michael and explained the situation to him.  He was very concerned, and we quickly reviewed the situation.

After my conversation with Michael, Southeast Pathology sent out an identical unit to replace the damaged unit within days of receiving the damaged unit.  This, to our laboratory, speaks above and beyond the level of service Southeast Pathology stands behind.  When we are in the market for laboratory equipment that Southeast Pathology can provide, we will always turn to Michael at Southeast Pathology.

I definitely recommend Southeast Pathology for your equipment needs.”

Thanks to Southeast Pathology Instrument Services, we have been able to outfit our lab with high quality histology equipment at a fraction of the prices we were quoted by the major brand manufacturers. The entire staff were extremely accommodating at helping us pick the proper equipment to suit our needs, not to mention were able to help us find some rare specialty equipment that we had been unable to locate through the big name reps.

Without the high pressure sales tactics we normally encounter, Southeast Pathology employees were honest and straightforward. As certified equipment service experts for all the major brands, they were able to help us navigate the pros and cons of each of the numerous models they had in stock to make sure we were getting the best possible machines to match the demands of our lab. I would recommend them to buyers of any budget range or equipment need, for their extensive knowledge, service capabilities, and exceptional customer service. ”

Benjamin Dubinowsky, LSU – Department of Biological Sciences.

“I have been running a Dermatopathology laboratory for 18 years.  For the first ten years we had service contracts through the parent companies of the processors and stainers we had.  However, we were never totally satisfied, mainly because those companies often outsource technicians through other servicing companies, and you never get the same technician twice.  You never know their expertise level, nor do you know where their loyalty is; to you, to the servicing company, or to the parent company.

On one occasion, a rookie technician doing preventive maintenance on a processor, connected two hoses backwards, and couldn’t make it work.  He had to bring (one day later) another technician to help him sort out the problem.  Fortunately, no specimens were ruined, but they could have been.   After that experience we decided to call a different (smaller) company with hopes of getting more consistent service.  And for the last 8 years we have not been disappointed of Southeast Pathology Services.

Headed by Michael Dietrich, company owner, the technicians are not only a nice group of people, but are well versed in all brands and types of pathology equipment.  You get to know them, and they get to know you and your equipment.  If the problem cannot be solved in the lab, they take the equipment to their shop for an in-depth testing and repair (a loaner is always available on those occasions).   Lastly, their fees are more reasonable than those of the “brand name” companies.  Any laboratory director, manager, or supervisor wishing to improve their equipment service experience should give Southeast Pathology Services a call.”

I would like to take a minute to say thank you for your excellent services through out the years. Having built 12 laboratories now, I honestly think of you guys first for quality products. You have provided me with Tissue Processors, Stainers, Microtomes, Storage Cabinets, Embedding Stations and on and on, and I have never felt that any product you have provided me was inferior to the way you described it. You have always delivered exactly what you promised and more. It is sometimes hard to find people these days who do, what they say they are going to do, 100% of the time, but I have found that to always be the case with you. You are easy to work with and true to your word. Thank you for everything!”

“Michael and his wife helped us set up a laboratory for friends of ours in Georgia. They delivered everything they promised and stayed on schedule throughout the project, and when we had an occasional issue with one of the instruments, they immediately replaced it with another one at their cost. Their instruments are still running nicely to this day (five years later), and they are still as responsive and helpful as they were five years ago. We highly recommend them to any potential clients looking for used or new histology equipment.”

“I have worked with Southeast Pathology Services for the last four years and have been very happy with their service, professional attitude, friendliness and knowledge. Many times they have helped me to troubleshoot problems over thephone to keep the equipment operating properly. They have been able to supply us with loaner equipment if our equipment had to be removed for repair. Michael and his staff have always been courteous and respectful to me and other lab staff. Southeast Pathology Services has very fair pricing and does excellent work. I enjoy working withthem and they keep our equipment in excellent condition.”
