Scientists, geologists and consultants involved in applications such as water quality measurement, stormwater control, water resource remediation and well assessments depend on high quality, accurate monitoring instruments for their work. Without consistent results in the field, they would be unable to perform the detailed analyses used to direct limited company, government or individual resources to their most effective use. Furthermore, these professionals need affordable instruments that perform flawlessly under adverse field conditions.
