ARGOLIGHT Warranty

What is covered:

This document describes the warranty conditions of the Argolight Product and supplants any other document regarding the warranty conditions (user guide, specification sheet, etc.) edited by Argolight prior this date.

Argolight warrants that all Product sold by Argolight will conform to the published specifications therefore and shall be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use, handling and service.

The warranty of the products is valid if the normal conditions of use are respected. These conditions can be found in the “general handling and care” section in the user guides of the Product. The user guides shall be deemed received and accepted if no claim is made by the Buyer to Argolight within one (1) month from the date the Product was delivered.

A. Fluorescent patterns

  1. Positioning

The patterns are positioned (170 ± 5) μm below the top surface of the glass, which optical flatness is typically 0.065 µm, on a plane which parallelism with respect to the bottom surface of the metal carrier is less or equal to 5 mrad.

The constituents within each individual pattern are positioned with a maximum relative error of ± 0.11 µm in XY and ± 0.15 µm in Z.

  1. Intensity

The intensity emitted by the patterns depends on the irradiation conditions: power density, illumination duration, excitation and emission wavelengths, zoom, etc.

Given the large range of possible irradiation conditions, Argolight cannot warranty an absolute intensity level of the fluorescence emitted by the patterns.

  1. Photo-stability

The intensity of the patterns may decrease. However, this decrease is transient. The fluorescence intensity recovers to its initial value after some time. The recovery time, i.e. the time it takes to the fluorescence intensity to get back to its initial value, depends on the irradiation conditions (power density, illumination duration, excitation and emission wavelengths, zoom, etc.). The recovery time can be from seconds to months, with typical values in the minutes range.

Given the large range of possible irradiation conditions, Argolight cannot provide recovery time values. However, Argolight warrants that the patterns will always remain fluorescent if the laser irradiance (peak or average) is kept below 50 GW.cm-2.

  1. Spectral features

The spectral features (excitation spectrum, emission spectrum and lifetime) of the patterns depend on the excitation and emission wavelengths, on the spatial scale at which they are measured, and on the illumination power density and duration.

Given the large range of possible irradiation conditions, Argolight only provides typical spectral features averaged on a scale of several micrometers, which are only valid for given excitation/emission conditions. Argolight does not warranty the accuracy of those s

  1. How long does the warranty last?

The warranty related to the fluorescent patterns is valid for the 3 years, from the date the Product was delivered.

B. Opto-electronics and control-electronics components

  1. Power sensor and control unit

Argolight warrants that all the opto-electronics and control-electronics components are free from any manufacturing defects and comply with the specifications provided in the user guide of the Product.

  1. How long does the warranty last?

The warranty related to the opto-electronics and control-electronics components is valid for one year, from the date the Product was delivered.

C. What is not covered by the warranty?

This warranty does not cover:

– the non-functional condition of the glass surface (for example, a scratch on a region of the glass surface which does not have fluorescent patterns below),

– the non-functional condition of the metal part surface (for example, a scratch on the surface which does not alter the parallelism or the flatness of the metal carrier),

– the effects and deteriorations linked to contact with water,

– the effects and deteriorations linked to any contact with acetone, ammonia or any other detergent, apart from alcohol or isopropanol intended for optical lens cleaning,

– the effects and deteriorations due to unusual physical, thermal, or illumination stress and excessive light flux, whose irradiance (peak or average) is above 50 GW.cm-2,

– the effects and deteriorations emerging from the use of the device with multiphoton imaging systems.

This limited warranty does not apply to products which are: (a) identified by Argolight as a pre-production product (alpha, beta or similar product) or a prototype; (b) special, modified or customized items meeting the specifications provided by the Buyer; (c) items repaired, modified or altered by any party other than Argolight; (d) items used in conjunction with equipment not provided by, or acknowledged as compatible by, Argolight.

To the extent the Product is incorporated into any other instrument or device, Argolight makes no representation with respect to the safety, efficacy, accuracy, reliability, use, or fitness for intended purpose of such integrated product. To the extent so incorporated into any other instrument or device, the Buyer hereby agrees to indemnify and hold Argolight harmless from any claims, suits, liabilities, losses, damages, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ and experts’ fees and expenses) and costs arising from or relating to any defects in and/or the use of such integrated product, and/or the failure of such integrated product to comply with any applicable laws or regulations.

D. What will Argolight do in case of warranty claim?

Argolight will repair any product that proves to be defective as per the given specifications.

In the event repair is not possible, Argolight will replace the device with a new similar device or with equivalent capacities or refund the full purchase price of the device.

E. How to submit a warranty claim?

To submit a warranty claim, please refer to the “General Terms & Conditions of Sale”.

 

EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY EXPRESSLY SET FORTH ABOVE, ARGOLIGHT MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE PRODUCTS, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
