Grenade Satchel is terrible because of the fact that all of the kit abilities share a cooldown. Close Combat Specialist is torn down due to the fairly pointless Sweeping Strikes ability. Breach Engineer and Support Technician would actually be quite viable kits if Combat Supply didn't tear them down. Physician has some potential if Cryptic uses Hypospray - Melorazine IV with Medical Tricorder II. Bioresearch and Xenobiologist will probably never work well due to the weak Stasis Field ability and the presence of the redundant Biofilter Sweep.

Biofilter Sweep needs something special, right now it's just a cleanse with a long cooldown. Vascular Regenerator also clears almost everything that Biofilter sweeep clears. The only unique feature is the fact that the ability clears mental debuffs. How many mental debuffs are actually ingame? All we have is neutral neutralizer, the shard confuse (which clears fast via willpower spec), and the expensive embassy consumables that nobody bothers using. There is currently no value in having Biofilter sweep on a standard kit. It will help medics with that extra cleanse, but it is still a second rate ability. Most of the time, Biofilter Sweep compared to Vascular Regenerator trades in healing and a shorter cooldown for an AoE cleanse effect.
Ah yes, forgot about Analyst and Security Protocols. So every class has at least one decent kit left. Which knowing Cryptic, will probably be the last ones.

I am curious, does Biofilter Sweep also cleanse Mind Meld and Seduce from Vulcans and Orions?

I knew I was missing an ability or two on that list. Yes, Mind Meld and Seduce are cleared by Biofilter Sweep, but most PvPers don't use them because of the relative short range needed and the long animation lock.
