Westbury Diagnostics has taken an active role in the Long Island Advancement of Small Business (LIASB) in the six years that we have been members. Unlike many of the larger trade organizations that have an outreach to small businesses, the only focus of the LIASB is small business. The group has increased its membership in leaps and bounds over the past few years.  While headlines and pundits have merely declared the importance of small businesses in an economic recovery, the LIASB has taken action. It is a group that has given small business a forum to gather, discuss problems and solutions, and effectively use the power of its combined strength.

As stated on the LIASB website, more than half of Long Island employees work for small business. From our Nation’s founding, small businesses have been the source of growth and innovation. They have created a flourishing middle class, and have supplied cities and small towns with new products and jobs. The LIASB provides monthly educational meetings for small businesses. In recent months members have heard from industry experts with practical advice on how to increase your sales, how to optimize your website to search engines, and also how to sell your product or service to the government. Westbury Diagnostics proudly sponsored the April 19, 2017 meeting entitled “15 minutes in the Sun.”

Westbury Diagnostics, Inc. is pleased to announce the recent completion of a study examining the antimicrobial effectiveness of Super Lube Multipurpose Grease with Syncolon (PTFE) ® manufactured by Super Lube. Our resulting bacterial test report, published on Super-Lube’s website, shows that the synthetic oil is 99% bacteriostatic after one day and 100% bacteriocidal after 7 days.

LI drug firm set to brush up on sales

Long Island Business News
December 1, 2000

Frontier Pharmaceuticals hires Westbury Diagnostics to test DioxiBrite - a plaque and bacteria killing toothpaste. The active compound was screened against strep, staph, E. Coli, and yeast. Most toothpastes work by physically removing plaque, the sticky substance on teeth, made up of bits of food, in which the bacteria live. Frontier’s brand, DioxiBrite, actually kills them. Only Colgate-Palmolive has a similar product, Colgate Total, using the antibiotic Tryclosan. “We are better on plaque and just as good on gingivitis,” Frontier says. The findings were reported at the Annual Society for Microbiology.
