The introducing New Tools Project (iNTP) has been the largest multi-country roll-out of the Truenat technology (Molbio Diagnostics, Goa, India), with 301 instrument systems introduced in 9 high TB burden countries. Truenat is the first WHO-recommended rapid molecular test for detection of TB and rifampicin resistance that can be used at a peripheral level. The instruments have integrated batteries, in-built connectivity, and can be used at temperatures up to 40°C. Suitcases have also been provided to several countries to allow for portability, for use in active case finding activities in conjunction with the ultra-portable digital X-ray systems provided under the project.
