    It would seem to me that the Zierings would be
    far better off selling DP to a company like Agilent
    (The test and instrument division that Hewlett Packard
    is going to spin off) than to hold it. A company
    like Agilent, with its large sales force, name
    recognition in the medical field, and reputations for quality
    should be able could greatly enhance the sales of DP
    products.

    • You're probably right that a big name could move
      DP products well. I don't think Agilent is likely
      anytime soon, though. Does anybody know when HWP acquired
      it's last test/measurement/medical company? It seems
      like that's exactly the reason for the agilent spinoff
      - too much focus on computing to do justice to
      test/measurement. They've got their hands full with the spinoff
      right about now, probably not going to do acquisitions
      real soon. Granted HWP did do a lot of acquiring in
      this field in earlier days. - Joel
