More Information about the Test and Tuberculosis


The tuberculosis test identifies the presence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection by measuring the immune response to the TB. Diagnosis will require blood to be collected. In the case of a positive result one should consult with their doctor to consider the first stage of treatment, which will depend on whether the infection is latent or active.

Our tuberculosis test kit has been shown to be accurate in 98% of cases, clearly demonstrating its reliability.

The Disease

General Information

Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which commonly infects the lungs but can infect any tissue in the body. The bacterium is spread via air-borne transmission and can be found in a latent and active form. In the latent form the bacteria is inactive, with the infected individual being asymptomatic and not contagious. The bacteria is activated by a weakened immune system, leading to the symptoms associated with the active form, which include coughing blood, chest pain, weight loss, fatigue, fever, night sweats and chills.

If left untreated the disease can be fatal. Individuals at a higher risk of contracting the disease should be screened for latent tuberculosis infection for example: HIV/AIDS patients, IV drug users and healthcare workers. A vaccination known as BCG is available.

Tuberculosis is common in developing countries, with the highest incidences reported in India. The rate of infection varies with age, with younger children being more susceptible in developing countries and older people more susceptible in developed countries. Approximately one third of the global population is suspected to be infected with tuberculosis bacteria, but 90% of cases are asymptomatic. endemic in more than 100 countries in Africa, the Americas, the Eastern Mediterranean, South-east Asia and the Western Pacific.

Treatment

The latent form can be treated with medication such as Isoniazid, Rifampin and Rifapentine, all of which prevent the development of the active form. The active form is approached with a 6-9 month drug treatment. The first line of anti-tuberculosis agents from the core treatment regime includes Isoniazid, Rifampin, Ethambutol and Pyrazinamide. The treatment is divided into the initial phase of 2 months, and the continuation phase of 4-7 months. It is necessary to finish the entire course of medication in order to kill all the bacteria.

Tuberculosis Test Kits FAQs



Who needs the tuberculosis test kits?
Anyone showing symptoms of tuberculosis should get screened for active tuberculosis. Those with weak immune systems such as HIV/AIDS patients, should be screened for latent tuberculosis. Also individuals at risk of contracting the disease or frequently exposed to the disease such as IV drug users or healthcare workers, should be screened for latent tuberculosis.
Can the tuberculosis test tell the difference between latent and active tuberculosis?
The test will determine whether Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria are present, but will not distinguish between the latent and active form. To find out if the bacterium is active further testing is required. A chest x-ray and a sample of the sputum will be sufficient to determine whether the bacteria has progressed to the active form.
