FlatPack room-temperature preservation technology leapfrogs current standards, under which TSA petri plates remain usable for only three months in cold storage – that is, 2 to 8 degrees Centigrade, or 36 to 46 degrees Fahrenheit, according to NanoLogix. FlatPack technology eliminates the need for refrigeration of TSA and extends the usable life of the TSA agar by multiples of what is available from competitors. In addition, FlatPack technology provides for easy visibility of all ten plates per pack for quality inspection, and reduces or eliminates breakage during shipping and storage. After shipping tens of thousands of plates, NanoLogix has been told by customers that not a single plate has broken.
I guess one could try and count the quality documents to see how many were done before Feb 20, 2013, and say that doesn't equate to 100,000. I don't think someone would use the words of tens of thousands if the true number was in the 100,000 range or more, right ?. So it appears we can get a rough idea where we stay by counting quality documents ? Anyone else have ideas how to count production on the limited information given so far ?
July 5, 2012: NanoLogix Announces Vendor Status
The company is pleased to announce it has been selected as a vendor by a multi-billion dollar US research and development corporation. The corporation has notified NanoLogix it intends to use approximately 12,000 units of NanoLogix detection technology for a project beginning in July 2012. This marks the first large sale of NanoLogix technology.
I don't know if the project intended required all the units up front ? But it appears only 4 quality documents are shown on the website around that July 2012 date. So 12,000 was the first 3/4 documents ? I wonder if thats a clue on lot sizes ?
One lot could be 50 plates or it could be 500,000 depending on the order sizes and demand. I would not expect each of the QA documents to be for the exact same size lot. In theory, as orders ramp up so would production which would likely lead to larger numbers of plates per lot.
