In a smaller study led by Lesley Scott from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, the authors compared the performance of Xpert MTB/RIF on a single sputum sample with that of smear microscopy, liquid culture and two other nucleic acid amplification tests (MTBDRplus and LightCycler MTB) in 311 adults suspected to have TB in Johannesburg, South Africa, a region where many adults are HIV-positive.

During the diagnostics session, Dr. Leslie Scott of South Africa's National Health Laboratory Services and University of the Witwatersrand described an attempt to even further reduce the cost of PanLeucogating by substituting a dye, thiazole orange, for the CD45 antibody."One of the advantages of PanLeucogating [with CD45/CD4 antibodies]", said Dr. Scott, "is that it makes delayed sample testing possible-up to six days old-because the lineage specific marks are robust."But even though thiazole orange "can reduce test costs to less than US $2-3 per test, it cannot be used for delayed testing."Dr. Scott concluded, "Thus, it is not a solution for the developing world."She noted that, ironically, thiazole orange could be used to reduce the cost of CD4 tests in the developed world.
