Hello all,

Is it possible to give more details about the script (.sh) data transfer tracker-Aggregate?
is it just for TB data or not?

Hi This is for @YuryR does the package has the functions to capture data from GenXpert machines??

Hello @Aanyo! The .sh script is not only for Tb. It can be used for any package.

This is an example of the script (work in progress). Of course, it needs to be modified to meet your parameters.

Hi @Zuweina!

At the moment, the Xpert data that is captured in the generic package is

  1. MTB - detected, not detected, error/invalid/no result
  2. RIF - susceptible, resistant, indeterminate
  3. Date of result
  4. Specimen number

There is no specific function in the package to capture data from GeneXpert machines at the moment. However, we have been discussing this functionality with partners and community. Feel free to get in touch with us so we can collect more information on your use case.
