The “Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Levofloxacin Test” is a specialized diagnostic procedure used to assess the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacteria responsible for tuberculosis (TB), to the antibiotic Levofloxacin. This test is crucial in the management and treatment of TB, especially in cases where drug-resistant forms of the bacteria are suspected. By cultivating the bacteria from a patient’s sample and exposing it to Levofloxacin, this test determines the effectiveness of the drug against the TB bacteria, thereby guiding healthcare providers in tailoring the most effective treatment plans for their patients.

Performed at DNA Labs UAE, a reputable facility known for its state-of-the-art diagnostic technologies and stringent quality controls, the test ensures reliable results. The cost of the test is set at 660 AED, reflecting the intricate processes and expertise required to accurately determine the drug susceptibility of the tuberculosis bacteria. For patients and healthcare providers dealing with tuberculosis, especially the drug-resistant strains, this test represents a critical tool in the fight against this challenging disease, enabling more precise and effective treatment strategies.

CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST LEVOFLOXACIN Test

Test Cost: AED 660.0

Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Test Details

The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Levofloxacin test is a laboratory test used to determine the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis to the antibiotic levofloxacin. Levofloxacin is commonly used in the treatment of tuberculosis. During the test, a sample of the bacteria is taken from the patient and cultured in the laboratory. The bacteria are then exposed to different concentrations of levofloxacin to determine the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) that effectively inhibits the growth of the bacteria. The MIC is the lowest concentration of the antibiotic that prevents visible growth of the bacteria.

The test helps in determining the effectiveness of levofloxacin in treating tuberculosis and guides the choice of appropriate antibiotics for the patient. It is particularly important in cases where drug-resistant strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis are suspected.

Test Details

The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST (Drug Susceptibility Testing) Levofloxacin test is a laboratory test used to determine the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (the bacterium that causes tuberculosis) to the antibiotic levofloxacin. Levofloxacin is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic commonly used in the treatment of tuberculosis.

During the test, a sample of the bacteria is taken from the patient and cultured in the laboratory. The bacteria are then exposed to different concentrations of levofloxacin to determine the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) that effectively inhibits the growth of the bacteria. The MIC is the lowest concentration of the antibiotic that prevents visible growth of the bacteria.

The test helps in determining the effectiveness of levofloxacin in treating tuberculosis and guides the choice of appropriate antibiotics for the patient. It is particularly important in cases where drug-resistant strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis are suspected.

The results of the Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Levofloxacin test can help healthcare providers in determining the most appropriate treatment regimen for patients with tuberculosis, ensuring that the antibiotics used are effective against the specific strain of bacteria present in the patient.
