The “Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Amikacin Test” is a specialized diagnostic procedure aimed at evaluating the resistance of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium responsible for tuberculosis (TB), to the antibiotic Amikacin. This test is crucial for patients who are not responding to standard TB treatment, as it helps in identifying the most effective medication for their condition. Conducted on a culture of the AFB (Acid-Fast Bacilli), which is a characteristic group of bacteria including the TB-causing bacteria, this test determines the susceptibility of the bacteria to Amikacin, enabling healthcare providers to tailor treatment plans more effectively.

Performed at DNA Labs UAE, a leading laboratory known for its advanced diagnostic techniques and accurate test results, the test cost is priced at 660 AED. The facility ensures that the test is carried out under stringent quality control measures, providing reliable and timely results. This test is an essential tool in the management of drug-resistant TB cases, facilitating targeted therapy and improving patient outcomes.

CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST AMIKACIN Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST AMIKACIN Test for patients who require testing for tuberculosis. This laboratory test helps determine the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (the bacteria that causes tuberculosis) to various antitubercular drugs, including amikacin.

Test Details

The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST (Drug Susceptibility Test) involves culturing the bacteria in the presence of different concentrations of amikacin. The growth of the bacteria is then observed to determine the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC), which is the lowest concentration of the drug that prevents bacterial growth.

Benefits of the Test

The results of the Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST AMIKACIN Test can help guide the selection of appropriate antibiotics for the treatment of tuberculosis. If the bacteria are found to be susceptible to amikacin, it can be included in the treatment regimen. However, if the bacteria are resistant to amikacin, alternative drugs will need to be considered.

Test Cost and Report Delivery

The cost of the CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST AMIKACIN Test is AED 660.0. Samples should be submitted as a pure growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex on appropriate media in a sterile screw-capped container, sealed in a plastic bag, and shipped refrigerated. The report will be delivered within 21 days, with daily sample collection by 3.30 pm.

Method and Test Type

The CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST AMIKACIN Test is performed using an automated fluorescent method. It is specifically designed for the detection and analysis of tuberculosis.

Pre Test Information

No special preparation is required before undergoing the CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST AMIKACIN Test.

Importance of Specialized Testing

The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST is a specialized test that is typically performed in reference laboratories or specialized tuberculosis centers. It requires expertise and specific laboratory techniques to ensure accurate and reliable results.

Conclusion

If you suspect tuberculosis or need to determine the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis to antitubercular drugs, the CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST AMIKACIN Test offered by DNA Labs UAE can provide valuable insights. Our experienced team and advanced laboratory techniques ensure accurate and reliable results for the best possible patient care.

Test Details

The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST (Drug Susceptibility Test) is a laboratory test used to determine the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (the bacteria that causes tuberculosis) to various antitubercular drugs.

Amikacin is one of the drugs included in the test. It is an aminoglycoside antibiotic that is commonly used in the treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) or extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB).

The test involves culturing the bacteria in the presence of different concentrations of amikacin. The growth of the bacteria is then observed to determine the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC), which is the lowest concentration of the drug that prevents bacterial growth.

The results of the test can help guide the selection of appropriate antibiotics for the treatment of tuberculosis. If the bacteria are found to be susceptible to amikacin, it can be included in the treatment regimen. However, if the bacteria are resistant to amikacin, alternative drugs will need to be considered.

It is important to note that the Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST is a specialized test that is typically performed in reference laboratories or specialized tuberculosis centers. It requires expertise and specific laboratory techniques to ensure accurate and reliable results.
