I'm checking them out over here. The local agents only stock the top-of -the-range CardioCheck PA, saying that the BioScanner is outdated and the cheaper CardioCheck needs seperate tests to do HDL, TGs and Total Cholesterol; so they don't stock or support it. I'm getting details at the moment, but phone advice is that the CardioCheck PA is about AU$770, lipid strips are about AU$8 each. No insurance support at this time.
