Dear Histonetters:  I have used Biocare's PAP pens and personally
speaking I don't like them.  I used the red and the "regular".  The
regular pen never worked well and I was told by Vygus they discontinued
those.  The red pen sort of works but initially it leaked all over the
place which drove me crazy.  I sent the one pen back and never heard
from BioCare again until I contacted Vygus who assures me I have a
credit, do I Vygus?  Regards, Tom wrote:
