What other Professionals are Saying
Hilary Baker, Project Engineer
"Thank you so much for the Vibe-Core Mini! The instructions on how to attach the plastic tube to the head of the Vibe-Core was very clear and easy to do. The underwater sediment acquired using the Vibe-Core Mini in the field stayed contained within the tube, reinforcing our confidence with your product. I would use this device again and definitely recommend this product for anyone who needs to collect shallow underwater sediment samples. "
