Any news after the Agilent acquisition? How is Dako to work for now?
We didn't have enough lab space so we bought the new Dako Autostainer and parked in the parking lot. It is so large that we can run an entire lab inside of it. Beats buying an RV. We can fit four histotechs inside it, party every day.
Thanks Dako, nice job.
"You are obviously a corporate suit who has aint never stepped into a histo lab and not lived through a new instrument platform not working as promised and shutting down the lab."
Contact the DAKO CARES PROGRAM for a 5% discount on your next single-vial reagent.
Well if LM moves on, maybe her butt sniffing entourage will follow.
Dako is extremely Top Heavy with all the VPs and CVPs. I think it is time for LM to move on as people day by day respect her less and fear her more. She has always ran Dako by putting in fear to hearts of everyone who works there and that is usually not a sign of good management skills.
One good thing is they hired a new young GM sitting on top of Sales (LM) and R&D(FA). It is funny how LH pulled most CVP from Dako into DGG but not LM. Its gonna be interesting to see how things unfolds. FA sounds promising but I sure hope he pulls off all the Dead Weight
Omnis looks good but its like a mini van. Hugh!!! and is made to focus on Large customers. I have heard you require atleast 30 thousand IHC slides to qualify for the $180000+ instrument.
I understand why Dako did this because they were on verge of losing their Big customers but this kinda sends a screw off message to the smaller customers.
As usually they dont plan their releases so now they have to wait for FDA to approve certain stains.
Whako DAKO gona have to put your prices up again.
... I would go for a solid 30% rise this time.
Go on, make em cry.
You are obviously a corporate suit who has aint never stepped into a histo lab and not lived through a new instrument platform not working as promised and shutting down the lab.
When is the Dako research platform available and when are all their fda cleared antibodies available on the new clinical platform? Are there any installs yet?
sounds like another bad planning exercize.
I am buying one because I like the pretty interface
on new Dako instrument demo at USCAP our managers were impressed, our histologists were not. We are not getting one until it has been out two years and issues fixed.
The Omnis is just a Tekan worked up and warmed over with pretty buttons. Can it run research assays, and is it open? Are all the FDA cleared assays available on it?
No thank you mate. Cute buttons and user interface. Pretty packaging to entice dumb pharma managers. Ask the histotechs if it will make their lives better. May have some advantages with ISH.
Labs will need to keep an old Dako instrument to run Herceptest as it won't be available on the Omnis for a year! Great launch plan........typical Dako screw up.
Agilent are not stupid.. they'll push out the idiots and dead wood from Dako quickly enough, drive the bottom line through their solid supply chain/procurement discipline and push the top line with aggressive distribution. Its the same formula as they used with Varian and I'm sure it will happen again with the next loosely structured and underachieving company they acquire.
what about the old systems they have today? How do they fit in with the new system
I guess the girls got their hands slapped for airing dirty laundry on here. Nice to be able to focus on the products or lack thereof.
No ISH menu (promises promises) and where the heck am I going to find room in our lab for an instrument that big. Unit was clearly designed only for the factory labs, not the small to mediums.
Who is going to runit?
Bitter disappointment - is that all you've got?
OMNIS is a bitter disappointment, so it is indeed "Great," for the competition
OMNIS is great!!! I´m impress with this new platform.
We'll see this week at USCAP, whether the long awaited instrument finally is shown (Omnis, aka, the DakoTecanGeneScreen)
Nargol is the biggest idiot! She sleeps with anyone who looks her way!
Heidi and Kathleen are idiots!
What about the new instrument? Nothing I have heard from this company has been reliable for the past 2 or 3 years. Seems to be in some type of holding pattern. Waiting on what is the question.
What about Caroline?!?!
Heidi is the biggest bimbo in the organization!!
I can confirm what has been said here about Bob S is either true or totally plausible. Bob pushed away so much talent in his time at Agilent with his ego, crazy expectations and sexism. I can also confirm that all the people he put in place are indeed refered to by Sales as 'Bob's Bimbos'. Some of the most deserving of them not even mentioned here. It took too long, but his removal provides some hope for the division.
Be the one to end the vicious cycle. Move on. Stop the hate.

Kathleen, you are a nasty ugly stupid bitch!! You should have been fired and look pathetic walking the halls after your demotion. You need to look in the mirror bitch!
Well then tell us how great Omnis is then, or do we have to wait and see it at USCAP next week?
This is no smokescreen. You obviously haven't met Nargol who is super crazy.
This is all clearly a smokescreen for all the other problems at Dako, the delay of the long awaited new instrument platform a nagging and incredibly expensive royalty audit and a continued erosion of market share to both Leica and Roche.
Yes, that's her! She is in her mid 30's but acts like a teenager. Also, she overly flaunts her breasts in order to take attention away from her flabby gut. She is quite a piece of work and a total nut case!
Is Nargol the fat Middle Eastern woman with the messed up eye?
I hate working at Agilent and think the politics are terrible. Worst place I've ever worked.
Nargol is a stupid slut!
I believe the only reasons Nargol sleeps around is because she is immature and has low self esteem. It surprises me that men look past her fat ass and bulging belly to sleep with her. Men are pigs and probably why they sleep with pigs like Nargol. Disgusting!
Yeah Nargol's immaturity is probably the reason she sleeps around with everyone.
I don't think Nargol is crazy. She is just immature and emotionally unstable.
Yes, Nargol is super crazy and mentally unstable!!!
Here we go again...
Nargol is the biggest drama queen in the organization and she is seriously crazy.
Excellent point, I agree! These immature drama queens in marketing are making Agilent look bad. There are many happy people at Agilent and Dako was a great acquisition. Don't let these crazy women give the wrong impression.
Finally- nice to see some professional posts! Agilent is a great company. We can't let this one miserable group impact our business. A little house cleaning please!
I am happy at Agilent and think these people are making us look bad. Please talk to each other in the office instead of making posts like these which insult all us who like our jobs.
Yes, I agree and also happily work at Agilent. There are some drama queens in the marketing department but please don't think everyone here is unhappy and crazy. Kathleen, Heidi, and Nargol all need to grow up.
I am a low level employee at Agilent genomics. And in spite of all the mess and craziness, I like working here. Yet looking at the posts I feel there are a lot of people who need to grow up beyond their mental age of 9 years
Grow up guys. Or shut up and stop embarrassing the rest of us
Wow, this is horrible behavior and the worst I've seen on the rumor mill. You women should be ashamed!
Got some really pissed off people here. Waste of energy, but good to get it out, eh? Feel better already! See, it works!
You women are crazy!!! Don't you realize how much you're embarrassing yourself and Agilent?!?! Just let it go and talk to each other instead of posting these mean messages. Be professional!
