    anychance of this being bought out?

    There are a handful of companies that are likely interested in BSC and all are capable of doing it: Tyco, GE, Stryker, Abbott, or a couple of large investment groups that I won't name. There could also be interest from a drug company; Pfizer or others? The drug companys are under a huge amount of pressure to increase cash flow as their products come off patent. BSC would bring a new set of products for a drug company, but there are some similiarities. That being said, I've been thinking buyout for 3 years now ($18 Target).....BSC is one of only a few companies that are pursuing the next big thing, J&J and Medtronic seem to be somewhat stagnant. BSC's track record of buying small companies with new technologies has been absolutely pathetic (a dart board could have done better, no doubt), but it sounds like they have some potential with recent investments. So, they are capable of standing on their own
