How much is a laser like this worth?

My lab is upgrading a microscope and the company is "upgrading it" by upgrading some components and just taking away the laser used for photobleaching and "disposing of it" for us. I'm trying to get a feel for how much they are fleecing us for, if its enough I may be able to convince my PI to fight to keep it for some purpose.

The picture is attached and the part number is 52-850251-00

On the back is says it complies with CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11

New? It's anyone's guess. Mine is >$2000. This looks like a lab laser containing multiple output products. Its design appears specialized. But to the hobbiest making pretty colors, you may have $200 in gear you cold sell on eBay.

All it says is that its manufactured in Issaquah Washington in 2005.

It has a bunch of ethernet cable ports on the back as well several labeled interlocks and 1 labeled optics ID

Yeah, I have no idea what this could be then, let alone what it's worth.

It's definitely worth keeping if you can get your hands on it.

Based on the warning label there appears to be three separate units:
~410nm 75mW (diode laser or argon)
532nm DPSS 30mW
Some kind of blue and IR combination laser

There's no argon line at ~410nm, last I checked.

The IR listed there is just residual from the pump and ND. It either means there's no IR filter, or they're accounting for the possibility that the IR filter could be damaged/removed during the life of the laser. My guess for the blue is the common 473nm.
