(OTCBB: DECN), the exclusive worldwide sales, service and regulatory processes agent for the popular Shasta GenStrip[TM], the unique Green Glucose Test Strip, specifically designed to work with the Johnson & Johnson's (NYSE: JNJ) LifeScan Ultra family of glucose testing meters, today announced that its Pharma Tech Solutions subsidiary has scheduled for shipments, large box quantities of Genstrip for immediate delivery to its distributors. Shipment logistics will be completed tomorrow.
Keith Berman, Principal Executive Officer of Decision Diagnostics, commented, "Beginning in July 2013 Medicare changed its reimbursement practice. These changes have proven to be an unexpected boom for our business."
DECN is a leading provider of prescription and non-prescription diagnostics, home testing products for the chronically ill and a premier developer of revolutionary cell phone centric e-health products and technologies. DECN's FDA cleared Shasta GenStrip[TM] product was first introduced to the market in late 2012 as a lower cost (50%) alternative for user/owners of Johnson and Johnson LifeScan OneTouch[R] Ultra[R], Ultra2[R] and Ultra Mini[R] glucose meters.
Mr. Berman concluded, "In August and September 2013 we received several favorable court rulings and the analyses of these rulings from the media added to the positive outlook for Genstrip sales. The product is being looked at by all of the large retailers and is already a hit with the independent distributors. We also plan to shortly announce a commercial credit line dedicated to Genstrip sales."
