To address this issue, the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) in conjunction with the Department of Health (DoH) will, on January 18th 2010 launch a competition to support the development of diagnostic devices that are clinically useful and commercially viable, to counter the impact of infectious agents in humans and animals.
