Man I feel your pain. I invested majority of my money into this turd.
This hope you speak of, I think is within a year or two reach. Perhaps we can still get our money back by then. Why? They still have to do a trial for the new cassette anyway (15 minute vs 45 minute). That should eliminate the human error part. I had my hopes for BoviPure but it's no where to be found on their website now.
I just think it's too early to freak out. I totally understand the frustration, as I've been long on this stock for a long time now, and seen it go up and down. But there are still reasons to be hopeful... very good results at most hospitals, soon-to-be used format (cassette) which will eliminate almost all the potential error-points with the Elisa test, agreements in place with cassette manufacturers and distributors, the background of Faulkner, Caspari, and the ex-Air Force guy, and the support for avoiding CT scans that the FDA has expressed. There are still a lotta reasons to hang in there. So I will give 'em the benefit of the doubt and hang in there. I think they'll announce something in the next few weeks. I can wait for that.
