Automated reading microscopy sputum slides

Guardian Technologies International Inc. (OTCBB: GDTI) today announced that it has joined forces with two prominent industry leaders in laboratory solutions, Prior Scientific ( and Olympus Soft Imaging (, to create and accelerate the integration of Guardian's Signature Mapping™ (SM TBDx™) diagnostic software into a first-of-its-kind, fully automated sputum microscopy solution for the computer-aided-detection of tuberculosis.
SM TBDx's 92.86% accuracy in positive cases and 3.75% false positive field of views, in the November 2009 clinical trials, far exceeded the NHLS program objectives of 80% accuracy and no more than 20% false positives, as well as industry norms of less than 70% accuracy.
