[Histonet] Ventana discontinuing INFORM HPV product line

Hi all,
We have just been informed that Ventana is discontinuing the INFORM HPV Family 6 ASR and the Family 16 Probe ASR.  I believe that Ventana is the only company that offers this kind of product.

We don't have any experience in our laboratory developing and testing our own "cocktails".  Can someone offer some words of wisdom or perhaps a procedure?  At this point, I don't really know where to start other than to find out the probes included in the Family 16 ASR and to buy some dispensers for the BenchMark XT and Ultra.  Ventana cannot help us due to FDA regulations regarding laboratory developed tests (I think).
