The “Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Capreomycin Test” is a specialized diagnostic procedure aimed at determining the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium responsible for tuberculosis (TB), to the antibiotic capreomycin. This test is particularly crucial in the management of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB), where conventional treatments fail. By cultivating the AFB (Acid-Fast Bacilli) from a patient’s sample, the test assesses how effectively capreomycin can inhibit the growth of the tuberculosis bacteria, thereby guiding healthcare professionals in tailoring the most effective treatment plan for the patient.

This test is available at DNA Labs UAE, a leading diagnostic facility known for its comprehensive range of medical testing services. The cost of the Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Capreomycin Test at DNA Labs UAE is 660 AED. This investment is vital for ensuring the precise management of tuberculosis, especially in cases resistant to first-line treatments, helping to combat the spread of this infectious disease and improve patient outcomes.

CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST CAPREOMYCIN Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST CAPREOMYCIN test to determine the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis to the antibiotic capreomycin. This test is essential for guiding the selection of appropriate antibiotics for the treatment of tuberculosis.

Test Components and Price

Test Name: CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST CAPREOMYCIN

Components: –

  • Price: 660.0 AED

Sample Condition and Submission

To conduct this test, please submit a pure growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex on appropriate media in a sterile screw-capped container. Ensure that the container is sealed in a plastic bag and shipped refrigerated. If you have already submitted specimens for other AFB culture or Mycobacteria identification tests, the pure growth obtained in the laboratory will be processed for Antitubercular Sensitivity.

Test Details

The CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST CAPREOMYCIN test is a diagnostic test used to determine the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis to the antibiotic capreomycin. Capreomycin is an injectable antibiotic that is used as a second-line treatment for drug-resistant tuberculosis.

In this test, a sample of the bacteria is cultured and exposed to different concentrations of capreomycin. The growth of the bacteria is observed, and the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) is determined. The MIC is the lowest concentration of the antibiotic that prevents visible growth of the bacteria.

Based on the MIC value, the strain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis is categorized as either susceptible, intermediate, or resistant to capreomycin. This information is crucial for selecting the appropriate antibiotics for the treatment of tuberculosis.

Test Details

The CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST CAPREOMYCIN test is a diagnostic test used to determine the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (the bacterium that causes tuberculosis) to the antibiotic capreomycin.

Capreomycin is an injectable antibiotic that is used as a second-line treatment for drug-resistant tuberculosis. However, the effectiveness of capreomycin can vary depending on the susceptibility of the specific strain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

The test involves culturing a sample of the bacteria and exposing it to different concentrations of capreomycin. The growth of the bacteria is then observed, and the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) is determined. The MIC is the lowest concentration of the antibiotic that prevents visible growth of the bacteria.

Based on the MIC value, the strain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis is categorized as either susceptible, intermediate, or resistant to capreomycin. This information helps guide the selection of appropriate antibiotics for the treatment of tuberculosis.
