Packard BioScience Company has just lowered the price on its already competitively priced Cyclone™ Storage Phosphor System. The Cyclone was the star product of Packard's business in 1998 and generated enough sales volume that the company has been able to reduce the price from $18,000 to $15,000.

The Cyclone was created for smaller labs that are forced to use X-ray film or must share imaging facilities with other departments. However, product manager Brian Ayling insists that the Cyclone is at least as good if not better than some of its higher-priced $50,000-$60,000 competitors. "We are trying to create a whole new market for people who use autoradiology film," said Ayling.
