We got an official FDA review letter just before Christmas. That letter did not contain a single question on Software and Instrumentation. We asked the FDA reviewer if there would be any more questions regarding the submission. The reviewer said that this was the complete review. So, Code Refinery, many kudos to you!”

I can only say good things about Code Refinery–the people and the quality of work.  Code Refinery has been a critical ally for quite a while now in getting the OBSERVA 3 product to market.  I am happy to say, we hope to reach this goal by the end of January 2008.  All the members of the Code Refinery Team we have dealt with are consummate professionals with an admirable work ethic.  We really appreciate the willingness and ability of the Code Refinery Team to help us in our time of need.  I would work with Code Refinery again in the future without hesitation.”
