I had a telecon (do you still call them that?) with my contract manufacturer yesterday (Business manager & lab mgr + team) and the good news is ....the 'fixed' packaging' is 3 weeks into it's stability & compatibility trials and they are perfect. Last time we saw cracks week 1....so 2 more months to go and we will know. Then 3 months lead time on packaging and we just scrape in ...no, we miss Xmas. Or, I take a calculated risk and order early to maximise the best gifting period of the year. Food for thought.
