What People Say About CARO

  • I have been working with CARO over the past 8 months and [our CARO Account Manager] has been extremely attentive, responsive, and helpful.  The best service from any lab I have received over the past year (especially on the back end).  

    - N
  • I switched to CARO many months ago and have not regretted it. CARO staff seem more organized than the previous lab I dealt with. I also really enjoy getting coolers that have little surprises inside (just received Halloween socks). Simple, inexpensive, and very thoughtful. I am sure I am not the only one that appreciates the little gestures. All of you managed to make receiving sample bottles fun. I can't wait to see what is inside the cooler next time.

    - Barb
  • Keep up with the Caro being fun & keep throwing it out there how local you guys are – we like that! - Gordon

  • I have dealt with many accredited labs throughout Canada; very impressed with service and accountability...Very friendly and welcoming. - J
