Letter from Organizations and Individuals to Cepheid asking them to reduce the price of Xpert MTB/RIF and Xpert MTB/RIF Ultra cartridges to US $5, inclusive of service and maintenance. They explain that. In large part due to the high price of Xpert cartridges, most high TB-burden countries have not sufficiently scaled up their procurement and use of Xpert as the initial TB diagnostic test. Instead, they continue to rely on the significantly less accurate, but more affordable, sputum smear microscopy, leading to gaps in TB diagnosis and rapid linkage to effective treatment.
