We are very satisfied with your software.

Scientist, Cancer Research Institute, Slovakia

Just to let you know we have started the validation study for Comet Assay IV and it has been going very well! We ran a comet assay last week and scored the slides with no problems at all. I am very pleased with the system and it will certainly make a difference when we run some comet studies this year!

Study Director, Food & Household Products Company, UK

It is, indeed, much quicker than the old image analysis system that we had. We are very pleased with it.

Senior Researcher, Public Health Agency, Finland

The system was set up last month, and so far it works very well. Both my boss and I are very satisfied with it and like it very much.

Researcher, University Hospital, Germany

We are really very happy with the comet analysis system.

Research Scientist, University, Austria

We have just recently utilized the system and are extremely pleased.

Assistant Professor, University, USA

We have had no problems so far, and we are very pleased with the system.

Senior Researcher, Public Health Agency, Finland

So far, I'm very happy with the system.

Research Lecturer, University, UK

Excellent, the training was very helpful and specific to in-house technicalities.

Lecturer, University, UK

Yes, it is very useful and we are in the process of writing a paper also from the data derived from Comet Assay IV.

Assistant Professor, University, USA

All is going well and the more I use the software the more I love the way it's so simple and intuitive...the comet software is running well and in increasing use.

Scientist, University, UK

The system is up and running. Everybody is impressed with the speed of scoring slides.

Researcher, University, South Africa

...and the system is running great.

Medical Researcher, Cancer Research Institute, USA

Thanks for your attention and great service. I am so glad that we have Comet IV.

Study Director, Contract Research Organisation, USA

We are using the Comet Assay IV a lot (and our use is increasing). It's working very well.

Professor, Children's Research Hospital, USA

We have found the Comet Assay IV software very useful and convenient.

Research Scientist, Food Safety Agency, France

Everything has gone very well with the system and we are very pleased with it.

Scientist, University, UK

Excellent, perfectly straightforward.

Scientist, University, UK

Total change in our lab since you came (with Comet Assay IV of course...)! thanks... :-)

Postgraduate Researcher, University, France

I have been using the Comet Assay IV Software. It is great! During my software validation, I realized how much easier and precise it is compared to our old software. It makes analyzing the comet slides more enjoyable

Scientist, Medical Research Centre, USA

We are impressed indeed! It has saved us quite a lot of time and pains.

Director, Toxicology Research Centre, Spain

It is actually working great.

Professor, University, USA

The current Comet Assay IV system works without any trouble…we are pleased with the system.

Scientist, Chemical Company, Japan

I love the software. Keep up the good work over there.

Study Director, Contract Research Organisation, USA

It's an amazing program! Really useful!

Research Scientist, University, Brazil

...Everything is fine with the Comet Assay IV system...and I'm pretty happy about this new software with just clicking on the cells instead of drawing a frame around them

Researcher, Cancer Research Organisation, UK

We are very happy with everything, it is easy to work with your software.

Senior Scientist, National Health Institute, Portugal

I'm really a fan of your system :)

Genetic Toxicologist, Global Pharmaceutical Company

We're now using the software and it works great. It has cut our time for comets by at least half.

Post Doctoral Fellow, National Institute of Health, USA

The system is working great.

Senior Research Scientist, Cancer Research Institute, UK

...we are "happy users" of the software

Senior Researcher, Risk Assessment Institute, Germany

Perfect and very clear installation and training.

Study Director, Contract Research Organisation, Europe

The installation was quick and all the details were described and easily understandable for the technicians.

Head of Department, Global Chemical Company, Germany

We started using Comet Assay IV and it works well...

Researcher, Nuclear Agency, France

I don't have any questions about the software as it has worked quite well for us...so far we are very happy with the software.

Research Scientist, University, Australia

Perfect and very clear installation and training!

Researcher, Contract Testing Laboratory, Europe

...have been using it now for a couple of weeks and it seems to be working great. Very user friendly - I love it as does my intern!

Staff Chemist, Marine Laboratory, USA

Comet Assay IV software is in use. Currently our comet analysis is based on tail moment measurement and I must say that everything works properly.

Researcher, Cancer Research Institute, Slovakia

Everything has gone very well with the system and we are very pleased with it.

Professor, University, UK

So it's working out fine and we're very happy!

Toxicologist, Health Agency, Canada
