Order Tracking: Auto-notification of orders and delivery status is available upon shipment. Customers who have placed orders will receive an order confirmation e-mail including tracking information. A video record of all items packed for each order is available upon request.
Standing Orders: Standing or Blanket Orders are the preferred solution for most customers as they reduce administrative and operating costs. Charm keeps track of all items billed against the blanket order, as well as its current status. A single PO# can be used for all shipments or separate PO#s can be given for each shipment. A customer calendar displays agreed upon ship dates and volumes which can be cancelled or changed at any time prior to the ship date. New standing orders can be issued around the customer’s fiscal year, making budgeting easier.
Delivering on Delivery: Known for successful on-time delivery and short lead times, our customer service team offers multiple solutions and service carriers including: Overnight, 2-day, 3-day and ground. Customers can choose the delivery option that best suits their needs.
After Hours Service: Normal business hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30am to 5:30pm, eastern time (USA), but since most global companies do not function during our business hours, Charm Sciences began implementing a 24/7 “live person” program shortly after it was founded in 1978. Our after hours service can often accommodate emergency orders when customers have a critical need for products or support.
Customer Response Time: We treat each customer request with the greatest care and attention. All inquiries are stored confidentially for scheduled follow-ups.
Perform Real-time Analysis on Raw Ingredients
The Charm EZ-M system was the feed & grain industry’s first available combined incubator and reader. The Charm EZ-M reads any quantitative ROSA mycotoxin strip used for grain testing including tests for aflatoxin, DON (vomitoxin), fumonisin, ochratoxin, T-2 / HT-2 toxins, and zearalenone that are GISPA certified for multiple commodities. Each of these mycotoxin tests has a different color strip for automatic identification on the Charm EZ-M system.
Testing is so fast and simple that many facilities use the Charm EZ-M system to perform real-time analysis on raw ingredients as part of acceptance testing. By screening grains in the receiving area, food manufacturers can be assured that raw materials are of an acceptable quality.
The Charm EZ-M System:
- Is fully customizable to meet your facility’s needs. Only the tests, commodities, and dilutions for the specific detection levels you run appear. Use to incubate and read tests; or, to perform batch testing, externally incubate multiple tests and read results in the Charm EZ-M system.
- Will self-diagnose common errors, such as re-running the same strip or adding too much sample.
- Provides data redundancy and convenient transfer to external computers. The internal memory backs up 8000 test results; the SD card stores over 100,000 test results. Results are transferred to a PC using a standard USB cable, wirelessly, or with the SD card reader. Results can also be transferred to a LIMS network.
