The “Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Streptomycin Test” is a diagnostic procedure conducted to evaluate the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium responsible for tuberculosis (TB), to the antibiotic streptomycin. This test is particularly vital for patients diagnosed with TB to determine the most effective treatment plan, especially in cases where drug resistance is a concern. The process involves culturing the bacteria from a patient’s specimen and exposing it to streptomycin to assess the bacterium’s resistance or sensitivity to the drug. This information is crucial for clinicians to tailor antibiotic therapy that is most likely to be effective against the TB infection, thus improving treatment outcomes and reducing the spread of resistant TB strains.

The test is available at DNA Labs UAE, a leading diagnostic facility known for its comprehensive range of tests and state-of-the-art laboratory services. The cost of the Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Streptomycin Test at DNA Labs UAE is 660 AED. Given the critical nature of accurately diagnosing and managing tuberculosis, especially in the context of increasing drug resistance, this test represents a key tool in the global fight against TB. Patients undergoing this test at DNA Labs UAE can expect reliable results, contributing to the effective management of their condition.

CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST STREPTOMYCIN Test

Test Name: CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST STREPTOMYCIN Test

Components: Streptomycin

Price: 660.0 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 Streptomycin test is a diagnostic test used to determine the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (the bacteria that causes tuberculosis) to the antibiotic streptomycin. Streptomycin is one of the first-line drugs used in the treatment of tuberculosis. However, some strains of M. tuberculosis have developed resistance to streptomycin, making it ineffective in treating these infections.

The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Streptomycin test helps to identify if the bacteria is resistant or susceptible to streptomycin, which helps guide the appropriate treatment plan for the patient. The test involves growing a culture of the bacteria in the laboratory and exposing it to different concentrations of streptomycin. The growth of the bacteria is then observed to determine if it is inhibited by the antibiotic or if it continues to grow despite its presence.

This information is used to classify the bacteria as either susceptible, intermediate, or resistant to streptomycin. The results of the Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Streptomycin test, along with other drug susceptibility tests, help clinicians choose the most effective drug combination for treating tuberculosis. This is important in preventing the development of further drug resistance and ensuring successful treatment outcomes for patients with tuberculosis.
