“We have noted that TB-LAMP is easier to interpret than smear microscopy. We also noted that the complexity of TB-LAMP was comparable to that of smear microscopy. Overall, from our evaluation, TB-LAMP was found easier and faster compared to the conventional available TB tests. There was no need for sophisticated infrastructure or intensive training.”
