NORWOOD, MA-Admet Inc., a provider of integrated materials testing systems, is celebrating 20 years in business. In recognition of the milestone, the company is offering a free, turnkey biomedical or biomaterials testing system valued at up to $30,000 to a company or university operating in the United States.
