Customer experiences

Customer experiences

SQTS Courtepin reports on the experiences made with the Inlabtec Serial Diluter. In French with subtitles in English.

Video created by SGS Fresenius for internal training on working with Serial Diluter SA.

The reliability, the elimination of error sources, the optimised use of resources and the low operating costs convinced the Amt für Verbraucherschutz AG, Switzerland.

The Inlabtec Serial Diluter has clearly exceeded the high expectations of simplicity, reliability and accuracy for all ZLM team members, regardless of their professional experience.

The problem-free handling of short-term increased sample volumes and the enormous simplification of work quickly made the Serial Diluter indispensable at LKS.

The Inlabtec Serial Dilution System convinced the laboratory team of Wander AG with its simplicity, reliability and pleasant operation.

After a short introduction and familiarisation phase, the Wessling laboratory team in Lyss appreciates the simple, fast, precise and comfortable work.

Despite initial scepticism from some SGS team members about the Serial Diluter when it was introduced in early 2015, integration into the workflow proved to be very easy because no process changes or special training was required.
