MATLAB vs. LabVIEW for Hardware Communication?

I'm building a pressure-volume testing setup (schematic below). I've already run into a couple issues--e.g., communicating with Arduino (asked about on MATLAB Central) & now I'm getting extremely noisy data from the pressure transducer. Looking for advice, people have told me to switch to LabVIEW, saying that "MATLAB is best for numerically intense tasks (e.g., large data sets), but LabVIEW is best for control and data acquisition." Thoughts?
FYI: I would prefer to keep coding in MATLAB, but if it's not good at data acquisition I need to find another solution for my experiments.

For the LabView part, you are able to call it in MATLAB using actxserver, example.

I don't see how MATLAB can be blamed for the noise from the transducer.
