The TB Gold Plus Interferon Gamma Release Assay (IGRA) Test is a modern diagnostic tool used for the detection of tuberculosis (TB) infection. Unlike traditional skin tests, the IGRA test measures the immune system’s response to TB bacteria by quantifying the release of interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) in the blood. This method offers a more specific, sensitive, and faster alternative to older TB testing methods, reducing the risk of false positives due to BCG vaccination or exposure to non-tuberculosis mycobacteria.

Performed at DNA Labs UAE, a facility known for its advanced diagnostic services, the TB Gold Plus IGRA Test is priced at 660 AED. The test requires a simple blood draw, making it less invasive and more comfortable for patients. Results are typically available within 24 to 48 hours, facilitating quick decision-making in clinical settings. This test is particularly useful for individuals at high risk of TB exposure, those with a history of BCG vaccination, or individuals requiring a more definitive diagnostic approach for TB infection.

TB GOLD PLUS INTERFERON GAMMA RELEASE ASSAY IGRA Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the TB Gold Plus Interferon Gamma Release Assay (IGRA) test to diagnose tuberculosis (TB) infection. This blood test is an alternative to the traditional tuberculin skin test (TST) and is known for its specificity and reliability.

Test Details

The TB Gold Plus IGRA test measures the release of interferon-gamma, a protein released by white blood cells in response to TB infection. It requires a 5 ml (4 ml min.) whole blood sample from a green top (Sodium/Lithium heparin) tube. The sample should be shipped refrigerated and should not be frozen. The test is conducted using an enzyme immunoassay method.

Test Cost

The cost of the TB Gold Plus IGRA test is AED 660.0.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

The TB Gold Plus IGRA test is recommended for individuals at an increased risk of TB infection, such as those with known exposure to TB, healthcare workers, and people with weakened immune systems. It is also used for screening purposes in countries with a low TB incidence.

Unlike the TST, the TB Gold Plus IGRA test is able to differentiate between TB infection and prior BCG vaccination. However, it cannot distinguish between latent TB infection and active TB disease.

Pre Test Information

No special preparation is required for the TB Gold Plus IGRA test.

Report Delivery

The sample should be submitted daily by 9 am, and the report will be delivered the next day.

Conclusion

The TB Gold Plus IGRA test is a valuable tool in the diagnosis and screening of TB infection. It provides a more accurate and reliable alternative to the traditional tuberculin skin test. However, it should be used in conjunction with other clinical and diagnostic information.

Test Details

The TB Gold Plus Interferon Gamma Release Assay (IGRA) test is a blood test used to diagnose tuberculosis (TB) infection. It is an alternative to the traditional tuberculin skin test (TST) and is considered more specific and reliable.

The test works by measuring the release of interferon-gamma (a protein released by white blood cells in response to TB infection) when the patient’s blood is exposed to TB-specific antigens. The antigens used in the TB Gold Plus IGRA test are ESAT-6, CFP-10, and TB7.7.

The TB Gold Plus IGRA test is typically recommended for individuals who are at an increased risk of TB infection, such as those with known exposure to TB, healthcare workers, and people with weakened immune systems. It is also used for screening purposes in countries with a low TB incidence.

The advantages of the TB Gold Plus IGRA test include its convenience (only requiring a blood sample), its higher specificity compared to the TST, and its ability to differentiate between TB infection and prior BCG vaccination.

However, it is important to note that the TB Gold Plus IGRA test is not a standalone diagnostic tool and should be used in conjunction with other clinical and diagnostic information. It is also not able to distinguish between latent TB infection and active TB disease.

Overall, the TB Gold Plus IGRA test is a valuable tool in the diagnosis and screening of TB infection, providing a more accurate and reliable alternative to the traditional tuberculin skin test.
