Passing along our name is the highest level of endorsement. Much appreciated.
After searching online for 1000 ppm test strips, I found these at Indigo Instruments, and they were exactly what I needed, plus very reasonably priced! In an era where it is hard to find good customer service, I was pleasantly surprised when Chris answered all my questions, and made sure the product I ordered was what I was looking for! He was super helpful and knowledgeable. We received the product quickly and would not hesitate to order from Indigo again. Thanks, Indigo!
Glad we could help. Perhaps our greatest strength is that eveyone handling customer inquiries has a science degree.Â
