Installation of Hain Rapid Diagnosis System for Tuberculosis

From 19 -23 May the Hain Line Probe Assay System was installed by a technician from Hain Kenya. Rapid diagnosis of tuberculosis and identification of resistant strains is now possible at CERMEL.

This is a huge improvement, as samples do not have to be sent outside of the country in order to assess drug sensitivity of tuberculosis. Patients can now receive the appropriate treatment much faster”
