BANGKOK, Jan 11 (TNA) – The Government Pharmaceutical Organization (GPO) will sell 3.5 million antigen test kits at their cost price of 35 baht per kit.
GPO managing director Witoon Danwiboon said the organization today signed a contract to buy the 3.5 million ATKs from a supplier and the products would be delivered by 1 million kits a week.
Dr Witoon said GPO listed over 100 companies licensed to import ATKs and it could locally call for their bids to supply the products without having to seek permission for ATK import by itself.
Next week GPO will invite bids for the supply of 5 million more ATKs and their prices will be lower. The organization would also sell the products at their cost price, he said.
GPO had a stock of 3 million ATKs and would also procure ATKs to be used with saliva samples, the managing director said.
People could buy ATKs via www.gpoplanet.com or at GPO’s drug stores, he said. (TNA)
