The product was introduced in Europe a few years ago (3 or 4) and is 
available there.  I am not sure if they have a distributor here or 
not.  It is not widely used at this time and is interesting.  I spoke 
to some people at a meeting there in 2003.  I know this is not much 
help, at least you know where it started and Eurpean journals or 
connections may be a better bet.
