What is the Hidex Triathler used for at Abraflex?
George said: “The Hidex Triathler is a great machine. It allows me to measure swipe tests and water samples on a daily basis. I measure on average 10 water samples and 10-20 swipe tests per operational day.
“I like that it is customizable. We are looking at numerous numbers of radionuclides and the customization is perfect for what we need.”
“Unbelievable customer service from LabLogic”

We would not have been as successful as we have been, were it not for the impeccable service that LabLogic and in particular John Gavardi has provided!
