«I would like to highlight the excellent service for our Eddy Jet Spiral Plater by your Service Engineer. He arrived on time to the place and followed our biosafety instructions. He shows proficiency on the instrument and answers very knowledgeable my questions about the device. The instrument is working very well. Additionally, he kindly helps with additional inquiries about the Flash & Go Automated colony counter. We are happy with the Neutec service.»

«I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how much The Georgia Poultry loves our Petri Swiss 900 agar filler. After years of battling with the Carousal pourer it’s amazing how simple getting twice as much work done in a much shorter time has become. Also I would really like to thank our Neutec Service Engineer for always doing such a great job taking care of our machine. He is one of the most knowledgeable and gracious young men I’ve seen in a long time. What a great asset for us all. Thanks again»

«The visit from Dr. Brady Carter was extremely valuable to our technical team. He helped us gain a deeper understanding of how water activity relates to our specific products, how to correctly perform the tests and maintain our meters. We’ve been testing water activity for many years, but with his help, we will be able to use it more actively in both our product development and shelf life process. Dr. Carter was able to explain complex theories and calculations in a simple way and help us develop a practical action plan for our specific needs. – Erika Thornton, Clif Bar & Co, CA»
