Ganka Pavlova
EKF Distributor in Bulgaria

“We distribute the Hemo Control product in Peru and we find it to be a very reliable, resistance and versatile product that works brilliantly for us.  Peru is a country of difficult geography and our teams have had to endure extreme cold, unbearable heat and vast differences in altitude (from sea-level right up to 4,500 meters). The Hemo Control analyzers are installed in sea-level establishments operating in temperatures over 35°C and in the mountains, at more than 4,500 meters above sea level at far lower temperatures. We also have establishments in the jungle, with the Hemo Control operating in the hot and humid climate”
