Plugging a UPS into another UPS or power conditioner

Can anyone tell me if it is OK to plug a UPS into a Line Conditioner?  We have a fairly large piece of hospital lab equipment that a representative suggested we get a power conditioner to plug the UPS into.  I was told by tech support that this shouldn't be needed since the UPS itself has a power conditioner.  I also read online that doing this was against the NFPA but I don't know under what Standard this would fall under.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

I should have specified what type of UPS I was talking about.  It would be like the Tripp Lite SMART1500LDT.  It isn't a power strip.
