-11%

The “Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Kanamycin Test” is a diagnostic procedure performed to evaluate the resistance of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium responsible for tuberculosis (TB), to the antibiotic kanamycin. This test is crucial for tailoring the most effective treatment plan for patients with TB, especially in cases of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) or extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB), where the bacteria have developed resistance to the primary drugs used in treatment.

The process involves culturing the patient’s sample to grow any Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria present, followed by exposure to kanamycin to assess the bacteria’s susceptibility or resistance to the drug. This test is vital for ensuring that patients receive the most appropriate medication, which can lead to better health outcomes and help prevent the spread of resistant strains of TB.

The test is available at DNA Labs UAE, a leading provider of diagnostic and genetic testing services in the United Arab Emirates. The cost of the test is 660 AED, reflecting the specialized nature of the testing and the expertise required to accurately interpret the results. DNA Labs UAE offers this test as part of its comprehensive suite of diagnostic services, utilizing state-of-the-art technology and adhering to international standards to ensure reliable and timely results.

Test Details

The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Kanamycin test is a diagnostic test used to determine the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (the bacterium that causes tuberculosis) to the antibiotic kanamycin.

The test involves culturing the bacteria in the presence of kanamycin and observing their growth. If the bacteria are susceptible to kanamycin, they will not grow in its presence. If the bacteria are resistant to kanamycin, they will continue to grow despite its presence.

This test is part of the drug susceptibility testing (DST) process for tuberculosis and helps guide the selection of appropriate antibiotics for treatment. It provides valuable information for healthcare providers in determining the most effective treatment regimen for patients with tuberculosis.
