    If they had explained what the problem is/was, then it'd make it easier to trust them going forward.

    "Rest assured that your replacement product will meet all appropriate criteria."

    Sorry, Oren...but this statement really, truly burns me! Basically, with this they are admitting fault, but providing (at least from what has been presented here) no direct acknowledgment of this, much less an actual identification of the fault, accompanied by specifics of when and how this was addressed by them. BAD! BAD! BAD!

    No one does any process control or has objective data to show on this issue?

    I think you're expecting a level of transparency from K/A that is far from what you're ever likely to get.

    Alaris has advised of the issue. It isn’t a matter of end-user speculation. In general I don’t think it is reasonable to expect non-commercial hobbyists to run objective process control tests on CI etc. The best they can do is let Alaris know they think something is off, and allow them to test and follow up.

    "objective process" is 98% of this forum , why leave development chemistry to chance? I bet Drew doesn't...

    I bet Drew has a densitometer that reads to four decimal places.

    The list just keeps going with Kodak. Didn't they announce recently that they're raising their prices?

    They ALL announce price increases, usually every year. Your point??

    They're asking me to pay more for their increasingly unreliable products.
