Re: [Histonet] Biocare p16

From:"Joe Nocito"

Flame time
See, this is what just fry my cookies about some of these vendors. Tell me 
this isn't a money issue. What happened to patient care, or is that obsolete 
now? I hate it when some one has a good product, then screws it up by 
getting greedy about it. Now, you have to purchase the detection kit to get 
the antibody. Bull do-do. Now I'm really urinated off. Get me the CEO. As 
some of you know, I have no qualms about getting into the face of a CEO. I 
had plenty of experience at my last job, not to mention a couple of NSH 
meetings too.
