- We have a Winner!
Recently, we randomly drew a name from an electronic hat containing the names of all the visitors to our booths at CLEO and DAMOP this year. The lucky winner will receive a free SLICE-QT four-channel temperature controller. Alas, we have not yet been able to contact the winner (please check your voice and emails if you entered), so I can’t yet say who it is. But stayed tuned; we should be able to announce the winner shortly!
