There are 5 iTrance members who have been let down completely by iTrance and MEMX CORP Ltd. They ordered the Elite Whey special back some months back and as you all have clearly stated, they have been treated like 2nd class customers by us and for that I am very upset.
However, as iTrance is only a trading name of MEMX CORP Ltd, all orders, payments etc are paid to MEMX CORP Ltd. MEMX CORP Ltd is continuing trading within other industries and will be moving on from the supplement Industry within the next 2 weeks.
Memx Corp Ltd is the legal company and iTrance is a trading name.

Earlier this month, the company, which is being spun out of Sandia National Laboratories, officially announced the appointment of its president and CEO and the close of its second round of funding, the amount of which hasn't been disclosed.
Simple 2D MEMS, which switch light paths from one mirror to another across a two-dimensional matrix, are currently being used in most all-optical switches, but these fabrics don't scale easily beyond 32 ports.
But if other companies are focusing on 2D MEMS solutions and pushing 3D development further out, it could give a start-up like MEMX a chance to really get the technology right.
