Aggressive investors and day traders should be watching Southwestern Medical Solutions, Inc. (OTC: SWNM) this morning!

This could be the type of news investors have been looking for! According to the company's press release, the results of preliminary in-house testing have exceeded management's expectations.

Six independent Florida based clinical testing laboratories are involved in the clinical evaluation of the Labguard product through testing with their wide array of healthcare personnel. Predicated on the results of this testing, the Labguard™ system will be manufactured under OEM license to major U.S. medical companies. SWNM is optimistic that the Labguard™ device will be brought to market ahead of schedule through a system of distributors. The Labguard™ system, currently unavailable, and having no match in the Healthcare Industry, will provide a safe, economic and comprehensive health screening analysis to companies & clinicians, and also will be packaged and marketed for home use.

Investors continue to watch this company's progress! SWNM is also in the process of filing patents for its production molding engineering processes, as well as its home health division product line, and has recently begun the process of designs for 2 new surgical disposable products related to the areas of cardiovascular health and feeding tubes.
