I agree with you wholeheartedly. There is a big difference between the
vendors and the recruiters. The recruiters do offer a service for which
they get paid, however it is of no cost to the histotechs. Which I
consider to be an
extremely valuable service to the histotechnicians. I have never been
attacked by a recruiter before as I have been by vendors in the past.
I do not have anything against the vendors posting their new products on
the histonet either. However, I agree with you about the vendors being
more interested in the blatant advertising of there product instead of
trying to help us
with the technical problem involved.
