    nnlx might need Amazon for sales

    "ThermoFisher serves over 350,000 customers within pharmaceutical and biotech companies, hospitals and clinical diagnostic labs, universities, research institutions and government agencies, as well as environmental and industrial process control settings"

    And that was 5 years ago. What price is worth paying for access to that kind of customer base? I think it would be called the leading distributor in the industry's justified mark-up.

    hilmr5--" I brought this up to Bret at some point, but he said they wanted too large a cut."

    I give hilmr5 credit for posting this to the board. Kind of falls into the material information category re: distributor deals. Didn't the company announce a while back they were approached by 2 multinational companies who wanted to distribute their products?

    "We also have sensitivity profiles known as the Kirby Bauer Disc Diffusion: It’s a qualitative assessment based on zone size. You take a plate, take a lot of bacteria from a swab and then you put different antibiotic disks on it, incubate and you get zones of inhibition. The zones of inhibition are encircling where the bacteria have NOT grown because they are being inhibited. Then you measure the zones and you refer to a chart known as the NCLS (National Committee and Laboratory Standards) that allows you to determine the prevalence of zone sizes. The bigger the zone, the more likely it’s to be susceptible to the antibiotic.
    These MIC’s or zone diameter values correlated with MICs are breakpoints. In general, larger zones correlate with smaller minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of antibiotic for that bacteria. They are a tremendously important guide toward choosing the appropriate antibiotic."

    Here is how it can be done manually now. BioMerieux, I believe is the biggest maker of automated systems. Factor in different types of bacteria...and different types of antibiotics along with some other variables.....and you might find such studies cost money to perform & you have regulatory issues to deal with.

    You missed my point....them putting up clinical data for AST results is another issue.
    I'm saying if Fisher wanted too big a cut off the top.....isn't there VWR Intl, Cole-Parmer, Grainger, Hardy Diagnostics, etc.....and probably a few dozen more not mentioned. What is the N. American distribution channel besides their website and now a VP of Sales?

    A $1 TSA plate is a basic, commodity type consumable. A $10 BNP for rapidly detecting bacteria for a total viable count would seem to be a different story...no?

    You may have something there Keembo....I typed in Amazon prepared culture plates....and the first hit for nutrient agar plates ( most people seemed to be buyers for their kid's science fair projects) had several comments from people complaining about plates arriving cracked or broken....or having a short shelf life. NNLX solves these 2 issues...right?

    "With the U.S. projected to be energy self-sufficient by 2030, according to BP Plc "

    Don't you hope BP is right, Herr Bayern?

    Omar,
    When you see a government agency put out a brand name acquisition request, like the above, then you'll know the product is "exactly what we've been looking for."

    Say Eric...on the fed biz ops site I saw where last month the dept of Ag. was looking for an automated sterilizer and plate pourer for a Pa. lab. Wonder if that prompted the "Barnhizer goes to Washington trip"?

    "Veolia’s environmental monitoring technology unit Endetec has announced that its TECTA automated microbiology system has received approval from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) for performing regulatory compliance testing for E. coli and total coliform bacteria in drinking water distribution system samples under the Revised Total Coliform Rule (RTCR) and other related regulations of the Safe Drinking Water Act.
    David Dolphin, Managing Director of the sensor division of Endetec, said “US EPA approval represents the ’gold standard’ of validation of the TECTA system, and we are extremely pleased to be able to offer the unique capabilities of the system to our customers as part of our Smart Water solution.”
    Consisting of the TECTA B16™ instrument and TECTA EC/TC™ single-use test cartridge, the complete system was subject to rigorous third-party testing under a US EPA-approved study plan prior to receiving approval under the Alternate Test Procedure (ATP). The approval action was published in the US Federal Register on June 19, 2014. Routine monitoring of samples taken throughout a drinking water distribution system for the presence of E. coli and total coliform bacteria is a key component of public health protection."

    Here you go...EPA approval for performing regulatory compliance testing for e. coli and total coliform bacteria.
