    I worked with BTL and they provided an excellent service to Waters at the development phase of our project.

    Both Dr. Laura Ciccolini and Mr. Nick White were very helpful and professional, [they] not only assisted me with the project but also gave me an understanding of the Freeze Drying process. The personnel at BTL are the experts in their field of freeze drying and really supportive to me as a client in our development phase and were really focused in adding value and optimising the process throughout.

    …fast response to customer requests and provision of a quote.

    Even though we had delays in confirming the order and providing the samples to btl, the analysis was conducted immediately and results provided swiftly, which is very helpful for a CMO like Vibalogics to keep our customers satisfied.
