Customer testimonials

"Using the ProtoCOL 3 has totally changed the way we work. We can now count around 300 agar plates per day, as well as generate results on vaccine potency, something which would have taken us a week to do manually. We’re extremely pleased to have the ProtoCOL 3 in our laboratory.”
