Re: $

So when are the next hybrids coming out? I heard they'll be cheaper. The Formica Hybrid will be available within a month or so -- others to follow. We are hoping the others will be available for Christmas, but we aren't making any promises on that just yet. We are hoping to be able to drop the pric...

Ahhhh, very nice!! For some reason I was thinking it was something you were using to keep a semi-sterile environment to avoid mold as you prepared the test tube ;)
