AFB/TB Susceptibility Clofazimine (Rapid- MGIT) Test Near You

The AFB/TB Susceptibility: Clofazimine (Rapid- MGIT) test is a diagnostic tool used to determine the sensitivity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.TB) to the antibiotic Clofazimine. Such information is crucial for healthcare providers in selecting the most suitable treatment plan for patients suffering from tuberculosis (TB).

This test identifies the presence of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (M.TB) in a patient's sample and assesses its susceptibility to Clofazimine, an antibiotic used in the treatment of TB. The MGIT (Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube) method is used in this process, a technique that provides quicker results compared to traditional culture methods.

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, posing a significant global health challenge. The emergence of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) and extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB) has made TB management more complex. Therefore, understanding the antibiotic susceptibility pattern is essential for effective TB treatment.
