Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (SGPPL) invites visitors to explore the new,
enhanced Web site for the company’s Laboratory Division. The site,
http://www.LabPure.com, features improved usability and content for products
supporting work conducted in research, development, environmental and test
laboratories worldwide. The site is part of SGPPL’s ongoing effort to increase
the availability of product information to distributors and end-user
customers.

The site highlights Saint-Gobain’s products for the healthcare and life
science markets—including Tygon^® flexible tubing; Chemware^® fluoropolymer
labware; injection and lyophilization stoppers; LabPure^® chromatography vials
and closures; and single-use Bio-Simplex™ bottles, flasks and manifolds
equipped with C-Flex^® and Sani-Tech^® fluid transfer components for cell
culture.

The site also features a new Closure Configuration Station to customize
closures for specialized applications, and receive an expedited e-quotation.
Additionally, customers can download and print technical data sheets and
catalogs. There is also an opportunity to participate in a Cell Culture
Discovery Interview to influence the company’s product development pipeline.
Navigation is easy, and sales team and distributor contact information is
readily accessible.

"The new Web site enhances the on-line experience with straightforward,
detailed descriptions of our innovative products, as well as facilitates
contact with local distributors," said Katia May, Market Manager for the
Laboratory Division at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics. "We're proud of the
site’s new look and enhanced usability, and are excited about giving customers
valuable information regarding our products and capabilities."
