Sorry Dr. Spengler - Print is Not Dead
Mike Auerbach, Editor In Chief
Harold Ramis, one of the great comedic geniuses
of my generation and arguably one of the greatest of all time – passed away recently. For those
that know of him, and for those that don’t, his
resume of comedy classics include Animal House,
Ghostbusters, Groundhogs Day, and Caddyshack
among a slew of other movies.
I mention him because one of the most interest-
ing lines in Ghostbusters occurs when his character, Dr. Egon
Spengler says “Print is dead.” This from a movie that came out
in 1984, well before anyone other than scientists had any in-
kling of what the World Wide Web would someday be.

Let's face it - travelling for business reasons is not very
glamorous. Beyond the inevitable snafus of just getting to
your destination, there are always worries of technology
glitches and concerns of staying in touch with the home office to deal with.
In the highly specialized, yet fundamentally important,
biological testing services segment of the pharmaceutical
contract services industry, the deficiencies of business travel
can be magnified by the length of time spent on-site monitoring testing procedures, and the lack of a dedicated space
to call your office away from home.
BioReliance, a company that provides testing and manu-
facturing services to pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical
companies, realized that the absence of full featured and
fully customizable biological clearance testing facilities was
an opportunity. The company’s recently opened testing fa-
cility in Rockville, MD offers their clients private and secure
work lounges along with fully modular lab spaces that can
be designed, equipped and ready-to-go upon their arrival.

the possibility that vaccines cause autism.
