Technical Advice

The different laboratories and units of the FSV are asked to contact the SV technical officer, Mr. John Blanc, when choosing and acquiring the different common laboratory equipment, according to the list below. This procedure allows to homogenize the equipment of the School, optimize maintenance, obtain the best after-sales service, reduce costs for the research laboratories, as well as to use more environmentally friendly equipment.
