    The Indian TB diagnosis market is not TST dependent but more on sputum microscopy and to a larger extent till date on ELISA Antibody based tests but since these ELISA Antibody based tests are banned at India as per WHO recommendation,there are 3 companies having ELISA kits based on antigens can have a market share fast if they are fast in getting the Registration certificate & Form 10 issued by CDSCO,India soon in name of them or their Indian agent/commercial partner.Another test based on TB Beads mfd by Microsense,UK can focus on Govt Designated Microscopy centres too.

    QFT TB will take time to reach Indian labs as the product is marketed by Alere Medical at India and they have their own product too from SD Diagnostics & the kit has its limitations too

    Serun ELISA of TB still not banned in India. This is the only test still now by which we can distingush in between Pulmonary & Extra-pulmonary TB. This method is more sensitive than card test.
