New website designed as an easy point of reference for Stomacher® applications and protocols
Worthing, UK – 10th April 2013 – Seward Limited, founding manufacturer and developer of the world leading, patented Stomacher® Laboratory Paddle Blender range, has launched a new, fully refreshed website. This is designed as a readily accessible point of reference for customers seeking assistance in sample preparation for microbiological analysis in the food, life science and environmental sectors.
New to the Seward website includes a Resource Centre to help visitors identify how the Stomacher® may be used. In addition, user guides and technical data are available for download, with useful videos demonstrating various routine protocols.
Seward has also updated its company logo to incorporate its unique circulator paddle. This reinforces the 40+ year heritage of Seward’s Stomacher technology, for which the Company holds the patent for the distinctive Circulator paddle design used in the Stomacher 400 Circulator. The paddle’s curved features improve organism recovery over older square paddle designs by enhancing the stirring and extrusion forces applied to the sample, driving more microorganisms into suspension for analysis.
“We are very keen to ensure that we can readily share our extensive knowledge and expertise in sample preparation for microbiological analysis with our customers and distributors,” said Dan Crothers, General Manager, Seward Ltd. “We believe that our new website acts as a highly useful reference site for all Stomacher related information. With this website and logo refresh, we aim to demonstrate our strong commitment to supporting our customers worldwide for many years to come.”
