Tuberculosis Infection test (Quantiferon Gold)

About this test

TB is a bacterial infection which affects the lungs and can also affect the nervous system. Altough it is rare in the UK, there is a prevalence of TB in large conurbations particularly in people who were born overseas. TB can be succesfully treated through anti-biotics although it can take up to 6 - 18 months for teatment to work.

Who is this test for?

This test is for individuals who wish to establish whether they have had exposure to the tuberculosis bacteria. It is particularly important for healthcare workers who may be exposed to TB through their patients. This test proves that you do not have tuberculosis, whilst the presence of a TB immunisation scar proves that you have been immunised.
