Understanding TB Gold Quantiferon in Bangalore

What is TB Gold Quantiferon in Bangalore?

Available at an affordable price in Bangalore with Tata 1mg labs, the TB Gold Quantiferon test, also called the Interferon-gamma release assay (IGRA) test is a screening test used to see whether a person has been infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (the bacteria causing TB).   It works by measuring the body’s immune response to the TB bacteria. It may be used to diagnose latent TB infection. It is not used to test for active TB disease. Also, it cannot distinguish between active and latent TB infections and, therefore, is used in conjunction with risk assessment, radiography, and other medical and diagnostic evaluations. This test is suggested by your doctor if you have symptoms of TB, such as persistent cough, fever, and sudden weight loss. It may also be helpful for individuals who have been in close contact with someone with active TB, those with a history of travel to or residence in TB-endemic regions, and individuals with a weakened immune system. 

No fasting is required for this test. You can eat and drink normally as per your routine.


What does TB Gold Quantiferon measure?

A Quantiferon TB Gold Test is conducted to detect the presence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the tuberculosis (TB) causing bacteria in an individual’s body. This test helps determine whether a person has a tuberculosis infection or not. It measures the release of interferon-gamma (IFN-γ), a substance produced by T cells in response to TB antigens. It assesses the specific immune response to TB, providing a more targeted and accurate result than the TST.
