Introducing the Tuberculin Skin Test

Tuberculin Skin Test (TST) is a reliable screening tool for detecting Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.

Quick and Simple Process

The intra-dermal test involves a small injection of tuberculin, also known as purified protein derivative (PPD) into the skin, providing essential information about TB exposure.

Rapid Results

Within 48 to 72 hours, individuals can determine their TB status, with a positive result indicating TB infection, prompting further evaluation, while a negative result suggests a lower likelihood of infection.

The Mantoux test is also used to test for past immunization with BCG vaccine.
