    "The DLS Solutions team is a collection of solid, experienced developers with a broad range of skills and project management capabilities. For many years DLS personnel were an integral component of SensIR's product development efforts. DLS is a trusted Software development firm that helped design and build a complete software suite for SensIR's primary product line. SensIR's strategy of developing rugged, reliable, portable FT-IR instrumentation for use outside of the traditional laboratory was successful in great part because of DLS ability to think out of the box and implement solid user friendly software in a timely cost effective manner. This unique Software and Firmware paved the way for SensIR's FT-IR Instruments to be widely used by First Responders and other non-scientists in the analysis of potentially Hazardous materials."

    - Robert Sebes, CEO SensIR Technologies


    "DLS Solutions worked closely with us to help build our MassWorks software product. They took on the role of the software development team as if they were an in-house software department. This helped us get the product completed in a timely manner for our award winning introduction at Pittcon. They implemented our proprietary algorithms, file storage, graphics, and user interface with a depth of usability experience that helped us make the software simple to use. Cerno Bioscience's accurate mass technology is now being marketed and used by all major pharmaceutical companies, and DLS was an integral part in enabling us to attain our goals."
