	I'd like to thank everybody who contributed their opinion in the use of 
the acronym "FACS" in describing flow analysis.

	The consensus was that the use of "FACS" in describing flow protocols is 
wrong for a variety of reasons, all of which you can probably deduce 
yourself. Most people suggested substituting "flow cytometry" for 
FACS-makes a lot of sense!

	Again, thanks for all your input.
