Faster sample preparation, enhanced road safety:

Bulgaria embraces the benefits of the FREESTYLE SPE

The "Forensic Research Institute of the Bulgarian Ministry of Interior" significantly speeds up the processing of drug tests. The key to this success is LCTech's bidirectional FREESTYLE SPE, which automatically processes driver samples and plays an essential role in making Bulgarian road traffic safer! 

The substantial reduction in preparation time allows for considerably faster court proceedings, as reported by Bulgaria's Prime Minister Nikolaj Denkow, Deputy Prime Minister Mariya Gabriel and Interior Minister Kalin Stoyanov on the country's news channels. The politicians see this as an crucial step in the fight against drug-related traffic accidents and for more justice, especially for traumatized survivors of traffic victims.
