“We use weighing equipment in our laboratories for weighing out powders, solutions and food products. The accuracy of the weighing equipment we use in these processes is of critical importance to maintain the quality of our work and maintain regulatory compliance eg GMP (Pharmaceutical). We use a wide range of equipment from different manufacturers, so it’s essential to our business needs that a supplier can supply Service/Calibration for all our different balances. Which is of particular importance when we experience an equipment failure where we can rely upon European Instrument’s technical expertise to repair our equipment.

We have worked with European Instruments for the past seven years and during this time I have always found EI staff to be polite, helpful and respond very quickly to our requests.

As with most businesses we aim to keep our costs to a realistic level. European Instruments offer a value for money service which helps us achieve this objective.”
