AFB/TB Susceptibility: Capreomycin (Rapid- MGIT) | Price | Sprint Diagnostics Hyderabad

The AFB/TB Susceptibility: Capreomycin (Rapid- MGIT) test is used to determine the sensitivity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.TB) to the antibiotic Capreomycin. This information is vital to healthcare providers when deciding on the most effective treatment regimen for patients with tuberculosis (TB).

This laboratory procedure detects the presence of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (M.tb) in a patient's sample and assesses its sensitivity to Capreomycin, an antibiotic commonly used in the treatment of tuberculosis. The MGIT (Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube) method is used in this test, a technique that offers more rapid results than traditional culture methods.

Tuberculosis, an infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, is a global health crisis as declared by the World Health Organization (WHO). The rise of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) and extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB) has made the management of TB more challenging. Therefore, understanding the antibiotic sensitivity pattern is crucial for effective TB treatment.
