Greetings.  I am reviewing a paper which uses the term "FACS" to describe 
general flow cytometry protocols.  It is my impression that "FACS" is a 
copyrighted term, describing the sorting of cells, but much like "Xeroxed", 
etc., has become a generic term for flow cytometry protocols.  Am I right? 
 Should this person be allowed to use this term, or should it be changed? 
 Thanks
