RE: [Histonet] Ventana Benchmark Problems

From:"patsy ruegg"

I heard from a reliable source that Danaher has made a larger bid for
Vision, not sure Ventana is in the running anymore to buy Vision.

This is interesting.
Vision used to make quite a bit of equipment for Leica, eg their HE
stainer and processor (which one, I can't remember). It seems it has
gone full cycle.
Just another Australian Company gobbled-up by big multinationals.

I heard the same thing until a Cytyk rep told me that some other company

bid them by 23 million. Some company that I've never heard of before. 
Couldn't remember the company if you paid me. All I know is that
they do not have a laboratory division. I think they may make surgical
x-ray equipment. I may be wrong (I know I know, I'm admitting it
publicly I 
may be wrong-- like that hasn't happened before). So, is it Friday yet?

Joe, let's flame him, Nocito
