Date:6/23/2009

er the next four years it is expected that partners GDF, GLI and FIND will provide equipment, reagents and technical expertise in identified countries for modernizing and expanding TB laboratory diagnostic capacity.

FIND and BD had announced the initial pricing agreement in November 2007 shortly after the WHO's Strategic and Technical Advisory Group for TB recommended liquid culture technology based on demonstration studies conducted by FIND in eight countries.
