  img002.gif  Testimonials

    "I was very pleased to see excellent performance across all O.D. ranges; it's especially nice not to have to change sensors
     as you move from really low to really high ranges. It's much easier to set-up and use than immersion devices; in fact the
     BE2100 was so straightforward that we really didn't even look at the instructions. The software is extremely intuitive and
     rather  friendly, too. It's a very helpful device."
 
     E. Timothy Davies, Ph.D. Director, Bioexpression and Fermentation Facility The University of Georgia

  

   "It's exactly the right idea for laboratory scale fermentation. Never losing a run to cross-contamination is terrific.
     It's quick  and  simple to set-up, but the precision at high O.D.s is the astounding part."
     
George Gaines III, Ph.D. Vireton Predictive Sciences

   

   "I needed to add a few mls of base when the O.D. of a 5L run was already at about 50. I actually saw the BE2100 show
     a slight  drop in O.D. That was pretty amazing. Actually that's what gave us confidence that the thing might actually
     work. When we ran  more fermentations and checked absolute O.D. by dilution, the BE2100 was right on.
     It's an excellent tool."  
Robert Vieth, Ph.D. The University of Connecticut

  

   "The students thought it was great. They had no trouble at all setting it up and getting running right out of the box.
     The software looks very interesting, several of my students really liked it in favor of what they've been working with.
     It certainly is an elegant approach."
     
Professor Harvey Blanch Chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering University of California at Berkeley
