I suggest for all the newbies to read up on AspenBio
That APPY score..........its so sensitive and specific. I bet you would say that it is as good as HCG for pregnancy testing right? Here is how good MRP 8/14 is as a stand alone, appendicitis test:
Same as Goldman Sachs selling and naked shorting.
Troponin in one thing, CK-MB, so is HCG and HbA1c. But the added cost of this non-specific test (well, it IS good when combined with everything else that is currently used at a big additional cost) is just smoke and mirrors. Try to get someone reputable like Roche Diagnostics to sell it. Just try. Because these jokers can't do it themselves. You need to research the long list of clinical diagnostic tests that Aspen has launched over the past 10 years. So who are they left with? Yes. The intelligent medical directors and marketers at the major Dx companies who just laugh this off. It's almost as comical as Sequenom.
Happy day trading. Remember, when the music stops, no more chairs left boys!
