Happy Spring Everybody!

I’m certainly looking forward to spring! New England had a REAL winter this year, with lots of snow and colder than normal. March has warmed, we’ve had some rain, and we still have 18 inches of hardened snow in the yard. It’s the price we pay for living in one of the most beautiful spots in the world!

AETA’s been quite busy this quarter! By unanimous decision, this and future newsletters will be on our website for all the public. Dr. Duxbury prepared a draft letter in response to FDA request for comment on non-approved drug usage (Thanks Margaret!). FSH products are a very small piece of that expansive group of products. With a few edits and the board’s approval we submitted AETA’s response by the deadline. This document is available to all AETA members on the website.

TIP: for retrieving canes, goblets and/or straws from LN2 tanks

You can purchase a 23-inch flexible shaft, 4-prong claw retriever tool from almost any auto-parts store for $5.74 – $29.00, depending on the brand. They are an excellent way to retrieve canes, goblets and straws that have inadvertently found their way to the bottom of a LN2 tank without having to empty the entire tank.
