    oust Casper

    So he cited tough conditions in the government and academic sectors in justifying the cut.
    Do you believe that explanation?

      Thats a convenient excuse. Earlier he said the company couldn't be affected like Illumina was because its so broad based. What is really going on is he is killing his coveted mass spec franchise....they are losing share. The Dionex acquisition brought in some new fresh faces he liked. He went so far as replacing the top sales leader who built Thermos (Finnagens) mass spec franchise in favor of a fresh face yes boy from little Dionex. Even Kevin Chance who jumped ship from Dionex before the acquisition was ousted. Its time for Casper to go. He is killing this important business with his "emporer and his new clothes" approach.
