Service Details

What is a Quantiferon Gold IGRA Test?

QuantiFERON-TB Gold, also known as a QFT, is the industry-standard testing for TB screening. QFT is a modern alternative to the tuberculin skin test (TST, PPD, or Mantoux). A blood sample is taken and tested in a lab to measure the strength of the blood’s reaction to tuberculosis bacteria to determine if they are positive for TB.
The simple blood is tested to detect Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacteria that causes tuberculosis (TB). However, in cases of a positive TB test result, you will be asked to do a follow-up with a chest x-ray for full confirmation of your results.
