I doubt if much in the way of any equipment has been purchased specifically for cfs me. Something hi tech in the past would have to be shared with cancer, hiv etc so cfs would have not been a priority if at all. Cd4 testing was mentioned as what this machine is used for elsewhere. I can only guess that this new machine is unique in some way as I have had my cd4 tested many times locally and guess that most labs in australia have a machine capable of this. These tests I have had done were well before griffith got their new machine??
