Services

At EQ we also offer a wide range of services to guarantee our customers maximum performance and accuracy for all our equipment. We are equally happy to support you with tasks that are clearly defined and might need only a few hours on a single instrument or with complex projects that require the coordinated use of several of EQ’s devices.
Take advantage of the vast range of equipment and expertise available at EQ.
