Great Instrument and Customer Service
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: General Lab Use

"Joseph Crusco helped us figure out the product installation issue and he is very professional and helpful! We got good customer service and assistance on what we need for the next steps. We have been using this Flex3 for many years, but Joseph Crusco is the only one who found our installation issue that never has been found during the previous maintenance."

Elga DI with Veolia service is a great combo
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Dispense filtered DI water

"We require DI water for so many applications, of course, we want to be confident that our water is never a source of contamination or causing irregularities. Our Elga Purelab Flex 3 does the job well but we may need to scale up to a larger volume capacity soon. Regardless, since we have a service contract with Veolia, I was pleasantly surprised that they reached out to us after the initial PM service in order to schedule our 6 mo follow-up. Normally this is something I would need to put on my calendar to remind myself to schedule it, but Kunal from Veolia initiated the service visit seemingly out of the blue (but right on time!) saving me a lot of regret and time. He was quick and great to work with, and very gracious to me even though I caused some minor service delays. I hope to work with him again in the future!"

Best bang for your buck
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Buffer preparation, LCMS

"The Purelab Flex 3 is perfect for all lab applications that don't require >10L water per day. The dispense rate is accurate and easy to recalibrate. The components are simple to switch out and it comes at a much better price than the MilliQ systems."

Great service, great people. Above and beyond.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:R&D in biochemistry-related manufacturing

"After sales were a pleasure to talk with on the phone, and the service was prompt, concise, and accurate. Both gentlemen were great to interact with and knew immediately what the problem was and did a great job helping me fix it over the phone. I won't go through a 3rd party support anymore for our ELGA products. Very impressed as they both went above and beyond even though the system was 7 or 8 years old."

Reliable and easy to use and replace.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Analyze environmental water samples

"We need ultra-pure water for use in the lab. Though the filtration system needs to be replaced every once in a while it does the job needed, and the system is even able to indicate when the purity of the water is dropping so that I know when to replace it."
