Eureka Moments: Making FIPG Failure Free

In this new video series, BTG Labs will share our Eureka Moment stories. A Eureka Moment is any time that a customer is doing testing and they receive a measurement or a number that just doesn't make sense. We call it a Eureka Moment because it is that number that allows us to explore and dig deep...
