Manufacturer's Response

Thank you for your feedback on the repair service provided by ELGA. We are sorry that the order issued by the University of Michigan procurement department, was initially addressed to the wrong Veolia entity. This caused unnecessary delays for the ELGA team to process your order. Our Quality System is ISO certified and we work hard to uphold our processes and procedures. We are looking into using the specific issue you reported to improve the initial sorting and analysis of customers' purchase orders so that an order, even when it is mis-addressed, is processed in due time. We hope to have the opportunity to discuss your next lab water application.

Great instrument, and consistently great service!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Water purifier

"The Elga Purelab flex is a great product that the whole lab benefits from! However, as with any product, regular wear and tear occur, and that's where the company service really makes a difference. In June 2020 the Elga was leaking profusely, and after contacting Elga, someone from the technical services reached out (John Kubicki) within a couple of hours with a drawing of the damaged parts, as well as the replacement numbers. We ordered and replaced the parts and the Elga was great again...until this year. In April 2021 the same Elga started leaking but from a different place this time. I reached out the John again, and he responded within minutes and sent out a replacement part for free immediately! We received the replacement part, and our Elga is as good as new! This is truly one of the best companies I've had the pleasure of interacting with, and I will always continue ordering and using their products. I cannot recommend them enough!"

Reliable water quality and great technical help.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Electrophysiology of somatosensory system, water essential for preparing experimental ACSF solution

"We have been using the Elga Puralab Flex 2 water system for 2 years with ease and dependability. But it is really Elga/Veolia.com's technical agents who are remarkable in helping us establish the parts we need and help with questions about the system as they arise. We feel it is this relationship with Elga that is the main reason we enjoy use of our system."

Nice upgrade from the older Ultrapure units!
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:De-ionized water for the laboratory

"Elga Labwater's Flex 2 unit is a compact wall-mountable DI unit for laboratories. It has a small footprint which is helpful when you need to keep the unit on the benchtop as the flex line is not as flexible and convenient to use as advertised. Works great when close to the unit. Nice display and easy trigger options for dispensing DI water. Preset volumes are handy and easy to program."
