The company is currently located in Santa Barbara, California. In 1985, the TRINITY System was introduced for quality assurance and potency testing of newly manufactured lots of antibiotics. Both products were designed to facilitate and speed, reading, analysis, and reporting of agar diffusion antimicrobial assays. In 2005, the V3 model was introduced. The BIOMIC V3 and TRINITY V3 systems are designed to be highly reliable, flexible, and to eliminate maintenance by utilizing solid state electronics with no moving parts.
