    Video Correction

    Sorry fellow Fools, but in the video above about a minute fifty in I say 12x's earnings. What it should have been is 12x's sales. Apologies for the faux pas.

    Cheers,

    Blake

    While these companies are basically focused on industrial applications, I'm surprised that nothing has been said about Organovo. They've developed tissue for lab use and it's only a matter of time before they make another leap.

    When I read about them the first thing that came to mind is all the people I'll seen over the years with skin graphs. Regardless of their original pigmentation the graphs stand out. Wouldn't it be a great thing for them to be able to create graphs based on the person's original skin pigmentation?
