Get an Expert with your Sensor!

Posted on June 17, 2009

Burns has been talking up the value of the Temperature Measurement Expert for nearly 50 years....  I discovered that there are others that see the value as well.  Ray Peacock, aka Mr. Pyrometer posted in his "Measurement blog" an article titled "Get an Expert with your sensor"  Take a look,  we couldn't agree more.


Thanks Mr. Peacock.   (Mr. Pyrometer)  Follow Him on Twitterpicture_5.pngbecjb.jpg

We are proud to be serving the people of the world...  Sounds a bit lofty, but it's true.  san-fam.jpgBurns has been contacted to supply temperature sensors to support the production of the vaccine for the H1N1 flu.   reuters.gifAccording to Reuters, posted:  Thu May 28, 2009, several companies are working on the vaccine:

"AstraZeneca's MedImmune unit owns the reverse genetics method, which it has licensed to a number of companies approved to sell flu shots in the United States including Sanofi-Aventis SA, Novartis AG and GlaxoSmithKline Plc."

We are thrilled to be working with many of these companies in their very important work. 


Helping to keep the world healthy, one degree at a time....


Remember...  wash your hands frequently.
