In developing Fritsma Factor, I realized that in order to ensure success, I was going to need three things: knowledge of how online forums are developed and used, the support of an organization whose mission aligns with mine, and knowledgeable visitors. I was able to kill the first two birds with one stone and have from our 2007 start enjoyed responses from a growing cadre of participants.
My colleagues quickly pointed me to Precision BioLogic Inc, Halifax, Nova Scotia, the company known for its frozen CRYOcheck hemostasis kits and controls. PBI enjoys a solid reputation in the in vitro diagnostics industry through its delivery of relevant and high-quality products and services. With enthusiasm, my PBI friends continue to provide full and enthusiastic support, now for over ten years. They have contributed a great deal of time and energy into developing the infrastructure for Fritsma Factor while encouraging editorial independence. I am grateful for our mutually productive relationship.
