Malvern Panalytical was also awarded a special Seal of Quality as the Lab Innovations exhibitor that received the most reviews from scientists during the month of October.

Seals of Quality are allocated in line with strict criteria based on the quantity of reviews a product has received and the average rating of those reviews. There are four levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze. SelectScience has now awarded Seals of Quality to over 30 lab products. These top-rated products are used in research across the scientific spectrum, but they all have one thing in common — the scientists using them absolutely love them.

“As we mark a fantastic first year for the Seals of Quality, we’re delighted to be joined by some of the leading scientific manufacturers who have really embraced this celebration of excellence and seen the value of cultivating customer feedback through a trusted, independent platform,” said Lois Manton-O’Byrne.

Arif Butt added: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our reviewers around the world for sharing their valuable opinions and also to congratulate the Seal of Quality winners, who have been recognized by the people who matter most, their customers.”
