    The Laboratory Capacity Team (LCT) in the Laboratory Branch (LB) in the Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE) at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is pleased to present the “Tuberculosis Laboratory Aggregate Report.” The information contained in the report is a compilation of the aggregate calendar year 2009 workload and turnaround time (TAT) data self-reported in progress reports by public health laboratories (PHL) supported in part by the TB Elimination Cooperative Agreement. In addition, current PHL methods and practices are included. These data serve as a tool to assess benchmarks and make peer comparisons. These may be useful guides for identifying testing practices and algorithms that are successful or need examination.

    The past year has been an eventful time in the LB. First, the name of the branch changed from the Mycobacteriology Laboratory Branch to the “Laboratory Branch.” This name change is consistent with the titles of other laboratory branches within the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP). In addition, LB has a new team. The Laboratory Capacity Activity is now the Laboratory Capacity Team (LCT) and joins the Applied Research and Reference Laboratory Teams. Expanded functions of LCT include oversight for the laboratory component of cooperative agreements, site visits, technical assistance, development of educational products, training, and operational research studies aimed at identifying model practices for laboratory diagnosis of tuberculosis.
