Product Evaluation FAQ

  • Q: How can my company evaluate an H&A Scientific product?
  • A: A free, live Internet WebEx demo is a great place to start getting acquainted with our best-in-class products. Basically we will e-mail you a link that you will click on, after which you can then see our computer’s desktop where we are running the application. Using the telephone or Skype, our team of experts will be available to talk you through the demo.
  • Q: Are there other methods of product evaluation?
  • A: Certainly, it just depends on which of our stable, reliable products you want to try out. For every product, we have multiple methods of evaluation. Simply contact us, and we can find one that works for your company. For example, with PC/Chrom, we can send you a fully functional program that simulates data acquisition, thus allowing you to simulate an entire chromatographic run, including final report generation. For SLIMStat, please feel free to send us some data, and we will generate a final report for you based on your data.

  • A: Yes, if it is feasible.

In any case, please contact us, and if your company requires an on-site demo, we will do our best to accommodate you.
  • Q: Do you have information other than the website that can be provided for product evaluation?
