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.

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.
