Autoplate® Spiral Plating System Unveiled at 2009 American Society of Microbiology Show
Shirley, MA June 17, 2009: ThermoFab a US-based, thermoforming company, completed the delivery of Spiral Biotech's Autoplate® Spiral Plating System - designing and manufacturing a custom plastic enclosure that met sales requirements for an updated look and feel while reducing service efforts. Spiral Biotech, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Advanced Instruments, Inc.
Spiral Biotech's parent company, Advanced Instruments is a leader in a variety of laboratory disciplines in industries ranging from clinical chemistry to microbiology to food and dairy. After extensive market research they developed a number of enhancements to their spiral plating technology. One of the objectives for this redesign was to move away from the metal housing used for previous versions and improve the accessibility of the instrument's components.
ThermoFab's reputation for quality, creativity, and timely turn around was well known within Advanced Instruments. "The ThermoFab team was great at staying on top of things," stated Dave Valois AI Senior Buyer. "The quality of their thermoforming was great, delivery went like clock work, and they offered flexibility on order volumes."
"Our goal was to develop an enclosure that represented the companies brand while making access to the inner components easier for the service reps," said Tom King, Jr. President of ThermoFab. "We are able to do this easily because of our extensive knowledge of plastics, thermoforming, and enclosure design."
At the American Society of Microbiology Show in May the new instrument received excellent reviews and, according to Anthony Pappas, National Sales Manager, "The new design met our goal of having the instrument standout in a crowd. We had positive responses from clients, and enthusiasm from our sales team."
Thanks to their hard work, attention to detail and customer focus ThermoFab has become Advanced Instruments supplier of choice.
