	You believe that your device can detect bacterial infection
and hence BSE? Call me naive, but I was under the impression that 
these encepalopathies were non-bacterial in origin. I wonder who
these 'several researchers' are. Perhaps you should add some 
references to your advertisment, or maybe typing the name of your
product in uppercase gives you all the selling power you need.
Perhaps you should avoid posting ads to Usenet discussion groups
altogether.
