Instrument performance is great but the support is somewhat lacking.
Application Area: Analysis of pharmaceutical starting materials for use in production of pharmaceutical drug product
"This product is used in the analysis of pharmaceutical starting material (identification of multiple containers of a lot) for ease in release of starting material for drug product manufacturing. The product has helped in the proper utilization of resources, as those that were normally reserved have been diverted to other functions. Researcher time, reagents, and instrumentation are more effectively utilized without any regulatory sacrifices. The product has helped in regulatory compliance and is very easy to use, so training, retraining, and user review time have been saved. However, due to some database issues, valuable instrument uptime was lost. The lack of update to some of the features has also decreased the utilization of the instrument. There were also some issues using some of the features, as there is much less wiggle room for customization."

This has been a great time and money saver. Highly recommended.
Application Area:proprietary coatings
"I had seen this item at Pittcon 2015 and recommended it to a client that deals in coatings. I recommended and trained the clients personnel on the product. The industry my client is in is very competitive and the coatings on their product are proprietary in nature. It is not uncommon, however, for some competitors to use these proprietary coatings. This instrument has made the detection of infringement much easier as well as determining whether or not it was my client's product in a legal action. It has saved my client much time and money."
