cost of HIV/AIDS testing to go down

Bill Clinton has brokered a deal with five medical technology companies which will lower the cost of HIV/AIDS tests.
Company executives said they hoped to make up for lower profits with higher sales volume.
That statement just sounds wrong.

The companies are -- Bayer HealthCare ... Beckman Coulter ... Becton, Dickinson & Co. ... bioMerieux ... Roche Diagnostics
