Avricore Health (TSX.V: AVCR) (OTCQB: AVCRF) today announced the signing of the first amendment to its supplier distribution agreement between HealthTab(TM) Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary, and Abbott, a global health care company and diagnostics leader in Canada. According to the update, the agreement, first signed on May 31, 2021, allows HealthTab(TM) to distribute in Canada Abbott’s Afinion(TM) 2, as well as associated tests for diabetes and heart-disease screening in community pharmacies. This includes HbA1c testing, which lead to the subsequent signing of a master agreement with Shoppers Drug Mart to bring this new testing to select locations as an initial pilot program. “A missing link today in the response to COVID-19 and general virus outbreak is the ability to get confirmatory testing and reliable, real-time reporting in a low-barrier setting,” said Hector Bremner, CEO of Avricore Health. “With ID Now(TM) on the HealthTab(TM) network in community pharmacy, patients can know what they have and get focused treatment and prevent spread through better information.”
