Hi Lawrence,

A good question, and Ken answered it as I hoped he would.

If that hasn't gotten your interest aroused, I don't know what would!

It just so happens that right now a few of us are getting together a
group of people to go in on a batch order, to get this and other new
tests done by a new company, called Biotix, in Germany. They offer a
20% or greater discount to groups. If we get a few more people, we may
reach 40% off. I can't guarantee that there won't be any other I1bs in
the group, though! You might have to share the honors with one or two

We would love to have you join us, so if you are interested, please
write to me for details.
