Hello Donna,
                       We have currently got an Energy Beam Microwave
Processor to evaluate and was wondering if you could e-mail me the 15 minute
processing schedule that you use for tissue of 1mm .Do you have a processing
schedule for tissue over 2mm in thickness also?if you prefer my tele No. is

 Thanking you in advance
