Good Used Psych Lab Equipment - Cheap!

Our interdisciplinary department had to give up its animal lab a while
ago & now we are faced with an order to clean out storage.  Our
equipment will be THROWN OUT if no one takes it.  I have given up
receiving real value - any offer (or trade) will be considered.  This
stuff is good quality and well cared for.
