    AXK holder

    I hold AXK and a small position in BDX. Right now, AXK is running live trials of their BacCel technology in Denver Medical center and Barnes Jewish hospital in St Louis. I don't know if they will be sucessful but if they are, then BDX will have a major engine of growth in their pipeline. BDX has until the end of September to exercise their option to take over the whole ball of wax and paying AXK a royalty on any revenues derived. There is potential here for major business in any medical facility that does culturing to identify harmful bacteria. Stayed tuned. Go to AXK's website for particulars.

    • I'm also an AXK holder, and I agree that AXK represents a potential goldmine for BDX. If the AXK technology works as it is supposed, it has multi-billion dollar potential -- but it will take BDX or someone comparable to commercialize the technology. BDX is in a perfect position to buy this technology for a few hundred million and get a 5-10 x return on an annual basis indefinitely. Very exciting opportunity for BDX shareholders...
