ok, thanks for that.

Conspiracy theory #1. I read on the website of Metrika, that Metrika was recently purchased by the pharma giant Bayer! as far as i can tell, Metrika had no other products and no biggies in the pipeline, so that says to me that Bayer went for Metrika based on their proprietary HbA1c instrument/test. So i believe that Bayer may be configuring availability and distribution to maximize profit. i don't know though, the web site i am trying to buy from says it is not fda approved for sale to other than physicians, but i know i have used some test kit which i bought at the drugstore. this all seems pretty squirrelly. even more so, the latest metrika instrument, at $109, will do 10 HbA1c tests before you throw it away. that's a big improvement on the single test units i used that were about what you said - $28/single test.
