Original text:

Acme Consulting Co, which is comprised of a dozen consultants, has lead several successful technology transfer efforts. For example, they negotiate a partnership for their client to study prisms which were provided by a major University to determine its optical properties at cryogenic temperatures down to 6 °K. Another success was the licensing of a state of the art connector for use in a PT device that helps bring a patient with back injuries to a standing position and assists them during ! gate therapy. These successes are complimented by a creative flair. In a completely different project, staff members Jayne Peirson and Lynn Sutton used their creative skills to develop a parity of the well known "Got Milk" campaign. The humorous ads dramatize the consequences of when an innovator fails to file a NTR when they develop a new technology. Pierson wrote and directed the commercial and found the actors to play the different roles. "Its exciting to see a project "come alive" like this," she said.
