The “Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Pyrazinamide Test” is a specialized diagnostic procedure conducted to assess the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium responsible for tuberculosis (TB), to Pyrazinamide, one of the key antitubercular drugs used in the treatment of TB. This test is particularly crucial for managing and treating multi-drug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) cases, where the bacterium shows resistance to the primary drugs used in TB treatment.

Performed in a controlled laboratory setting, the test involves culturing the patient’s bacterial sample to grow Mycobacterium tuberculosis and then exposing the cultured bacteria to Pyrazinamide to evaluate the effectiveness of the drug against the TB bacteria. This helps in tailoring the most effective treatment plan for the patient, ensuring the use of the right medications to combat the disease effectively.

The test is offered at DNA Labs UAE, a reputable laboratory known for its advanced diagnostic services and state-of-the-art facilities. The cost of the “Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Pyrazinamide Test” at DNA Labs UAE is 910 AED. This cost reflects the comprehensive approach taken by the laboratory, utilizing sophisticated techniques to ensure accurate and reliable results, which are crucial for the effective management and treatment of tuberculosis.

CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST PYRAZINAMIDE Test

Test Name: CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST PYRAZINAMIDE Test

Components: Price: 910.0 AED

Sample Condition: Submit pure growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex on appropriate media in sterile screw capped container in a sealed plastic bag. Ship refrigerated OR when used with other AFB culture or Mycobacteria identification tests, the pure growth obtained in the Laboratory from specimens already submitted will be processed for Antitubercular Sensitivity.

Report Delivery: Sample Daily by 3.30 pm; Report 21 days

Method: Automated Fluorescent

Test type: Tuberculosis

Doctor: Physician

Test Department:

Pre Test Information: No special preparation required

Test Details:

The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Pyrazinamide test is a laboratory test used to determine the susceptibility of the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis to the drug pyrazinamide. Pyrazinamide is an important drug in the treatment of tuberculosis, and this test helps guide the selection of appropriate treatment regimens.

During the test, a sample of the bacteria is cultured in the presence of different concentrations of pyrazinamide. The growth of the bacteria is then observed, and the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of pyrazinamide is determined. The MIC is the lowest concentration of the drug that prevents visible growth of the bacteria.

The results of the Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Pyrazinamide test can help determine if the bacteria are susceptible or resistant to pyrazinamide. This information is important for clinicians to select the most effective treatment options for patients with tuberculosis. It is worth noting that drug susceptibility testing is typically performed on isolates of M. tuberculosis obtained from patients with active tuberculosis. This helps guide the selection of appropriate treatment regimens and helps prevent the development of drug resistance.
