    Moshe Naar, Head of Production and QC, Hazera Genetics
  • "We were getting demands and questions like can you pack in 5,000, 30,000 and 50,000 seeds. It became clear that DATA could offer us a solution that we could develop ourselves with"
    Peter van Zeijl, CEO, Ikasido Global Group B.V.

    David Epema, Head Germination Testing & Seed Analysis, Rijk Zwaan
  • "With DATA's seed counting machines we were able to decrease the percentage of overfill because the count was so much more accurate. The return on investment was seen fairly quickly."
    John Fleischmann, Seed Quality and Pathology Supervisor, Heinz Seeds
  • "The new ICU machine has been vastly better when it comes to counting accuracy compared to the other ones we have, we are extremely happy!"
    Emil Kostadinov, Project Manager, Kendy Pharma Ltd
  • "Once I was introduced to the DATA Counter, I decided it fits our company’s need for counting small medical implants of 5mm x 1mm size. It completely answered our needs for accuracy and repeatability."
    Brad Hines, Lean Coordinator, Paragon Medical
  • "In the past, we had problems with accuracy when counting small tablets, as well as problems related to powdered and uncoated tablets, the transition to DATA's ICU machine solved all the problems, we are very satisfied."
    Yongho Lee, Production team head, Korea United Pharm
  • "We chose DATA's seed counter because it's very efficient, accurate, precise and fast."
    Marcel Looije, iventory Stock Seed/Production, Axia Vegetable Seeds BV
  • "The company packs about 150,000 packs monthly. While processing so many packages of so many seeds, one should maintain a very high quality of the seeds meaning all the processing levels should be maintained at very high quality and more than that, our operation is targeted at excellence."
    Moshe Naar, Head of Production and QC, Hazera Genetics
  • We have two more lines, where we count tablets and capsules, in the way other counting systems are constructed the counting area gets dirty very quickly and we must clean the machines very often. With the ICU counting machine, the problem is solved, and in a very dusty environment, we are forced to clean only once a day.
    Pietro Carlucci, Director of Production, Kräuterhaus Sanct Bernhard KG
  • "In the testing phase of the machine, we sent over 30 different types of the most challenging tablets and capsules: for example, the smallest soft gels, the dirtiest tablets, the most problematic tablets, most of which the previous multichannel machine could not count. The ICU machine can now count all types of tablets, soft gels, and capsules that we pack here while maintaining absolute accuracy."
    Yitzhak Bar Dror, Factory manager, Altman
  • "We have many different types of formats, and we need to change several times a day. The ICU machine is perfect for that, completely flexible. As for the accuracy, it's perfect we have 0 complaints."
    Aleksandar Penyashki, Chief Engineer, Fortex Ltd
  • "The quick changeovers allow us to pack several products a day, which was done first with blood, sweat, and tears."
    Gil Zeller, CEO. BARA Herbs
  • "At the machine approval stage, we thoroughly examined the accuracy of the count by manually verifying more than 10000 bottles; the result was perfect."
    Yongho Lee, Production team head, United Pharm
  • "DATA Detection Technologies is impressive in terms of the built quality of the seed counting machines and the way the counting is measured and recorded. You can notice when you study it that it's hard to have any mistakes in the system."
    Peter van Zeijl, CEO, Ikasido Global Group B.V.
  • "Everything’s about quality, every number we produce, every test we do must be 100% correct. Everything we do must be usable; everything we do must very stable, very conditioned, we can achieve all that with DATA's seed counters."
    David Epema, Head Germination Testing & Seed Analysis, Rijk Zwaan
  • "When I switched to the DATA's counting machine, there were many concerns because it was a new machine with new and unfamiliar technology, but to my delight, the new machine meets all expectations and gives us higher outputs than the previous machine with better accuracy and almost optimal reliability."
    Yitzhak Bar Dror, Factory manager, Altman
  • "One of the things that we liked about the machine when we first saw it, was that there’s not a lot of parts, so there’s not a lot of stuff to clean. Everything comes apart in seconds really, so if you needed to tear that machine down in under a minute, you could do it."
    Christopher Baurer, Director of Operations, Proficient Rx
  • "In the past, the seed industry used an average weight which is never accurate and you tended to lose more seeds when you sold to the customers."
    Khaled Kazzaz, CEO, Innova Seeds Co.
  • "DATA support has been outstanding. Whenever there's an issue our representative or a representative from their support team is always there and able to respond and fix our issues. They've also brought excellent improvements as time goes on, as they improve and make their equipment better and better, they've allowed us to upgrade our equipment which has been a huge benefit as well."
    PanDia Seeds
  • "We have a Tecnomaco Monoblock with a DATA counting machine and we are very pleased. Now we can count tablets and even though a lot of dust is created from the tablets, we can say that the machine counts very accurately. The dust does not interfere, mainly because the camera is positioned separately from the feeding track and tablets."
    Pietro Carlucci, Director of Production, Kräuterhaus Sanct Bernhard KG
  • "DATA's seed counters increased our customers appreciation for our brand when they are finding that when we say 5,000 it is 5,000 when we say it's 1,000 it's absolutely 1,000 to a point where we have so much confidence in the machine we usually don't address customer complaints when it comes to seed counting."
    Khaled Kazzaz, CEO, Innova Seeds Co.
  • "you ask for 30,000 seeds, get 30,000 seeds, enabling savings of approximately more than 10,000 Euros per year."
    Piet Zweed, Process Specialist, Syngenta Seeds
  • "The service is outstanding, I have a representative who speaks to me in German. I can call at any given moment and the machine can be accessed by remote connection. So far, when I had a problem, I called, and the problem was resolved within a few minutes, I am very pleased with the service."
    Pietro Carlucci, Director of Production, Kräuterhaus Sanct Bernhard KG
  • "We knew it was going to be far more flexible and with the fewer parts, less cleaning parts, less moving parts. With our previous multi-channel machine, one of the most frustrating thing, with uncoated dirty tablets on the multichannel style unit, our cleanings could take up to four hours."
    Christopher Baurer, Director of Operations, Proficient Rx
  • "It was very useful for me in the lab scale to determine the pellet abrasion."
    Péter Somogyi pharm D. Formulation Researcher, Teva Pharmaceuticals Industry
  • "DATA’s ICU 2-80 requires the least setup of anything that sits on the line, so from an overall changeover perspective, the ICU2-80 is very quick. After the initial setup, there is no bottleneck. Once it starts, it counts."
    Christopher Baurer, Director of Operations, Proficient Rx
  • "The ICU machines are onetime setting machines. They are "operator friendly" as they can select the recipe of the product directly from the available recipe and start the production."
    Vikas, maintenance engineer, Hetero
  • "we chose DATA's seed counters over everyone else just for the speed, the accuracy, and quality of the machine."
    John Fleischmann, Seed Quality and Pathology Supervisor, Heinz Seeds
  • "DATA has improved our counting and packaging processes by turning them from complex and problematic into easy and pleasant."
    Gil Zeller, CEO, BARA Herbs
  • "DATA's counting machine gives us an ideal solution for a wide variety of problems we had with previous machines."
    Shorashim Nursery
  • "It makes it a much more flexible machine for us than anything that we’ve ever had."
    Christopher Baurer, Director of Operations, Proficient Rx
  • "DATA's counting machine can count a large amount of seed very fast and accurate. The machine is user-friendly and easy to use."
    Agriculture Research Organization (ARO)
  • "We are using 2 DATA Counters, Count & Fill S60, since 2015. We are very much satisfied with the consistent performance in counting accuracy. DATA machines are working on very high standards at a satisfactory level. With DATA Counters we can supply the need for sales channel in a stipulated time."
    Mr. Prashant Khade, Seed Processing Plant Head , Sungro Seeds Pvt Ltd, India
  • "We purchased several units over the years. The machines are very reliable. We have been working with DATA's machines for three years and did not need to perform any maintenance activities. Unlike the situation with multi-channel machines where we are forced to perform maintenance operations and disable the lines once every 4-6 months."
    Vikas, maintenance engineer, Hetero
  • "We saw the return on investment in no time, both in manpower and accuracy."
    Gil Zeller, CEO, BARA Herbs
  • "Previously we would have to choose to run no more than two types of products in a single day, simply because of the time, it would take to manage that machine…. With DATA’s ICU machine we can run double or triple the number of batches of different types of products in a single day."
    Christopher Baurer, Director of Operations, Proficient Rx
