Federal Minister for Health Greg Hunt has denied accusations that his office pressured TGA staff to review restrictions on the sale of self-testing medical devices to benefit a major Liberal donor.

In September, the TGA announced it was examining whether to ease the current prohibition on devices used for self-testing infectious diseases, genetic abnormalities and serious conditions such as cancer.
