Sharing of Lab Manuals

TB Alliance is making mycolaboratory manuals from ongoing clinical trials publicly available in order to provide a useable template for other TB clinical trial organizations creating their own mycolaboratory manuals, as well as to facilitate comparison of procedures being employed across the field.

TB Alliance is making publicly available the mycobacteriology laboratory manuals used for two of its clinical trials, NC-005 and NC-006/STAND. The STAND study has three separate manuals, a master manual which covers all laboratory procedures, a quality manual which provides forms for the recording of data, and a site manual which covers site-level procedures like processing of sputum samples. The NC-005 manual covers quantitative mycobacteriology procedures which are not covered in the STAND manual. The goal of making these manuals publicly available is to provide a useable template for other TB clinical trial organizations creating their own mycolaboratory manuals, as well as to facilitate comparison of procedures being employed across the field.
