“We are impressed with the early results of AR on our website and look forward to introducing them to the medical lab industry,” comments Jeremy Lindner, President of Block Scientific.
“Manufacturers and distributors within the medical technology space are perfectly positioned to capitalize on the benefits of AR for product training, sales and marketing,” says Evan Gappelberg, CEO of NexTech. He continues, “When Jeremy offered us the opportunity of being at this major industry event to demo our AR capabilities in his booth and having him introduce us to his longtime suppliers of medical lab equipment I jumped at it, as it just makes total sense for us to work with medical equipment manufacturers creating 3D AR twins so that they can train and demo remotely.”
