Seward will be highlighting new introductions for food safety sample preparation on Booth 523 at IAFP 2015.
From 25-28 July, visitors to the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon, will be among the first in the world to see the newly-launched Stomacher 4500 BAM laboratory paddle blender.
It has been specifically designed for large volume food safety testing procedures including the FDA’s Bacteriological Analytical Manual (BAM), where 375g composite samples are required for the microbiological analyses of food.
IAFP 2015 will also be the global launch of a range of instant sterile preparation media products to speed up and simplify sample preparation for microbiological analysis.
Experts in food sample preparation from Seward Laboratory Systems Inc. will be on hand to demonstrate the new products. The full range of Stomacher blenders and bags will also be on show.
Seward representatives will discuss why Stomacher is the first choice for food microbiologists where safety and quality are the priorities.
From traditional microbiology techniques using Petri dishes and broths to the latest PCR identification systems, the quality of sample processing is a key first stage.
“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.
“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.”
