* Required Fields


Technical Service

Due to the large number of installed instruments, we employ dedicated factory trained engineers who specialize in CEM laboratory based microwave systems. Our team of experienced field based engineers provide on-site, after care service using state of the art diagnostic equipment and carry a stock of spares to ensure a rapid, high quality service. In addition, we offer telephone support and a team of engineers who operate an in house service facility. We can therefore offer an unparalleled level of support to fix your problems quickly and ensure that your system is operating at its peak performance.

Technical Sales

In addition to our Technical Service team, we also have a large team of technical salespeople. These people are chemists themselves so they understand your applications and can provide the best advice. Our sales people are, in many cases, the people who install the product, troubleshoot the instrument and provide additional applications support.

Our relationship with our customers does not end at the point of sale. That is where it begins.
Lab Support

Lab Support

With PhD trained chemists offering application advice in all areas of our business, we are uniquely positioned to provide the full support required to give your laboratories a competitive advantage. Method development and demonstrations can be requested from our in house laboratory where our chemists can fully discuss your application requirements. We know that the rigors of the modern laboratory often put strain on resources, and staff turnaround can mean lack of instrumentation experience. We help our CEM users rebuild and update their knowledge by training and advising new staff. This is backed up in our headquarters with scientists who are constantly finding new ways to use our existing products and finding opportunities where a new product is needed.  This group contributes to the scientific fields in which CEM is involved by publishing papers, conducting research, and working with customers to allow them to do the previously impossible.  The backgrounds of the members of the Science team include food science, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry, and biology.

Training and Demonstrations

As the leader in microwave research and manufacturing, CEM regularly holds product demonstrations and training seminars at our highly equipped laboratories to ensure you get the most our of your CEM system.  CEM's technical sales, technical service, and lab support teams collaborate to bring you sessions focused on your area of interest.  Contact us today to learn about our upcoming opportunities.
