    Reviewer: Annie Delacruz from San Antonio, TX  
    The customer service at Marshall Scientific is excellent. I called needing information on centrifuges and rotors and adapters, but wasn’t sure which model would be ideal for our needs. The people at Marshall took the time to listen to ALL my questions and offered up several options before ultimately helping to make a decision. I really appreciate how they went above and beyond for me on this order.
