EUROMEX AT PITTCON
Euromex launched at Pittcon with a stylish booth that was noticeably fresher than some of the competitors. Anchored by the iScope Biological microscope, NexiusZoom stereo and the wonderful new Q Scope handheld digital microscope, the line up looked impressive and caused quite a stir. Overall numbers were down for Pittcon but I am happy to say that we were kept remarkably busy answering queries on Euromex and the show was unquestionably a success.
It marked the launch of the Q Scope handheld digital microscope, which includes five staring models: a 1.3 MP, 2.0MP, 9.0MP, a 500x model and a WiFi model. Beautifully made and with startlingly clear resolution, the quality of the Q Scope combines with low prices to pose a serious threat to established competitors. The 1.3MP model starts at $149.00 and the 9.0MP at just $189! There are a handful of solid stands and we suspect the Q Scope will quickly establish a significant market share.
The iScope also generated excitement and deservedly so……at approximately $1,200 and with optics that match the best available, it is what I call a “door buster”. It will prove irresistible for Life Science customers because it presents a value equation that is almost irresponsible to ignore!
Beyond the products, the show was made more than enjoyable by the two highly professional reps from Euromex: Xavier Puig and Dennis van Baaren. Xavier is Sales Director for Euromex. A road warrior extraordinaire, he is a real professional and has been a significant factor in Euromex’s growth since he joined. He became the Petanque champion one evening! Dennis is a Product Manager with in-depth knowledge of all Euromex products. He has been a terrific support to us in these early days of launching Euromex in the US and is nothing if not credible when he speaks. A huge thank you to both of them for making Pittcon both worthwhile….and enjoyable!
