1. The solutions used by CI for washout and as cryoprotectant vehicle have 
been changed as a result of Dr. Yuri Pichugin's research. The new solutions 
have shown significantly better results. They also compare satisfactorily 
with alternatives proposed or used by others. The compositions are now 
available on our web site, along with some discussion. 

The new solutions are being prepared, and we expect this week to ship them to 
replace the old solutions to those funeral directors we have supplied.

2. I think I mentioned this earlier, but we have also shortened the dry ice 
cool-down phase to two days, after further investigation of results.

3. Dr. Pichugin is now on a combined vacation and business trip to the 
Ukraine and Russia, returning around the mddle of August. Among other things, 
he expects to work with brain scientists and cryobiologists on experiments in 
their areas of expertise and utilizing available equipment.
