Our personalised customer service starts from the very first interaction. Following an initial enquiry, a dedicated account manager, with industry-specific expertise, will establish the commercial and technical requirements for the assay and/or reader to be developed. The account manager will arrange a series of meetings or conference calls, at convenient times, with our assay and reader specialists to formulate personalised plans and schedules.
Account managers will typically be the client’s first point of contact. However, the whole team is readily accessible and will be more than happy to respond to any matters that arise.
