Obsolescence of PCX 5200 in February 2013

Special Note! The Pinnacle PCX and  Vector PCX instruments are available and will continue to be 100% supported for the foreseeable future!

The PCX 5200 will no longer be supported starting February 2013. This means we will no longer keep replacement parts in stock starting February 2013.  

PCX5200 will be obsoleted in February 2013

Common parts like tubing, nuts, ferrules, and filters that are used on the Pinnacle and the Vector will still be available.

Our current models, the Pinnacle PCX and Vector PCX are a great upgrade option to the PCX 5200. You can download our PCX Product Brochure from the Pickering website or find more information by clicking on the individual links.
