[Histonet] Biocare p16

We were notified last October by Cell Marque that MTM Labs had decided to
market p16 themselves.  I have spoken with their rep here in North America
and was told that we would have to purchase the entire kit but would be able
to use only the antibody (we have Ventana Benchmarks).  The cost per test
will double but our pathologists have decided that we still need to have p16
available.  The rest of the kit will end up being discarded.

We are just wondering if anyone else has been affected by Biocare's
inability to sell p16 and what you all have done to replace it?  We were
told by Biocare that we'd have to order the antibody (and the entire
detection kit, which we don't want)  from a company in Germany - MTM Labs.
My Pathologist would appreciate your advice.  Thanks in advance!  Laura
