Details of the RFP can be found at the following link: http://pharmac.govt.nz/2011/08/26. Following the evaluation of all RFP proposals, in relation to urine ketone test strips, PHARMAC has formed a provisional agreement with Roche Diagnostics New Zealand for the supply of Accu-Chek Ketur-Test urinalysis test strips. The current listing of blood ketone test strips (Optium Blood Ketone Test Strips) would not be affected by this proposal. However, Bayer has indicated its intention to delist its ketone urinalysis strips (Ketostix) when an alternative product has been listed.
