MDX Labs is the first to bring a faster and more accurate tuberculosis test to Southern Nevada. Approximately 80,000 people in Southern Nevada have a latent TB infection according to the Southern Nevada Health District. The announcement of the T-Spot.TB test means anyone who believes they may have been exposed to TB can be tested and receive a 95 percent accurate result in about half the time compared with other testing methods.

Those with latent TB infection do not feel sick or have symptoms, however, the SNHD believes up to 10 percent of those with a latent infection will develop into TB disease.
