Benefits of RSS

Using RSS allows you to find the latest sigma-aldrich.com promotions, new products, announcements and more without searching around the Website.

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a free Web tool that delivers feeds from Websites, including sigma-aldrich.com, that contain article headlines, summaries and links back to full-articles on the Web. This Web tool allows us to publish new content and updates that will be automatically added to the feed by customers who subscribe to our RSS feeds.

 

Reading RSS Feeds

To begin using RSS, you need a special news reader or aggregator that displays RSS content feeds from sigma-aldrich.com. A news reader is a piece of software that checks the feeds and lets you read any new information that has been added. There are many different versions of news readers, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications. Web-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feed from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer.  Below is a list of just a few tools for reading RSS feeds.
