Shelf Life Simplified: A Water Activity Based Approach1


  • We have been using the LabMaster-Neo quite a bit to characterize our samples. It is very easy to use and does not take up much space. It was well worth the purchase!

  • Within five minutes I was able to figure out how the NEO system functions. It was like it slapped me in the face, it was so easy to understand. It's like we struck on gold with an instrument that is accurate, precise, robust, and rugged, and not conducive to only working between the hours of eight and five. It makes our lives so much easier.
