Seward committed to IAFP’s ‘Advancing Food Safety Worldwide’ mission

Experts in food sample preparation from both Seward Laboratory Systems Inc. and its UK global headquarters will be on hand to demonstrate the new products.

“All protocols for the enumeration and identification of organisms in food require the best sample possible to be successful. Our Stomacher® 400 Circulator already has a proven reputation for maximising microorganism recovery by a patented combination of crushing and washing,” said Dan Crothers, Managing Director, Seward Ltd. “We look forward to meeting many food safety professionals at this year’s IAFP and introducing them to our new products. We can also discuss how these products will complement and uphold the Stomacher 400’s long heritage for quality in food sample preparation.”
