Executive Summary

A smart card-enabled Cholesterol Monitor will be available to consumers by year-end pending FDA approval, the Post Falls, Idaho-based company says. The device uses one drop of blood to determine cholesterol levels in three minutes; the results are then encrypted and downloaded on the included Privalink Microsoft Smart Card for Windows, allowing them to be sent to doctors or pharmacists via the Internet; the data also can be delivered in person. Other software records cholesterol levels for later review. Print advertising and an infomercial will promote the product to consumers and professionals, who must cooperate in establishing an information system to receive and store the data. The monitor will retail for $129.95, with packets of six test kits selling for $19.95
