The GeneXpert technology is a cartridge-based fully automated Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (DNA test). It can simultaneously detect Mycobacterium Tuberculosis (MTB) and Rifampicin (RIF) resistance with a high sensitivity and specificity. IOM has been implementing a TB REACH project since 2011, with
funding from the World Health Organization (WHO) STOP TB Partnership TB REACH Initiative. The project aims to increase early case detection of TB through the use of GeneXpert technology in the Eastern Development Region and two places in the Central Development Region of Nepal.
