The Typhoid DNA Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test is an essential diagnostic procedure aimed at identifying the presence of DNA from the Salmonella typhi bacteria, the causative agent of typhoid fever. Utilizing the power of PCR, this test amplifies specific DNA sequences of the bacteria, enabling their detection in the patient's blood sample. This typhoid DNA PCR test, often referred to simply as the typhoid PCR test, proves especially valuable in the early stages of infection, detecting the bacteria before a significant antibody response is generated by the body.

Typhoid fever, prevalent in regions with poor sanitation and limited access to clean water, poses a serious and potentially life-threatening threat. The disease is transmitted through the consumption of contaminated food or water with feces from an infected individual. Early diagnosis through the typhoid DNA PCR test is crucial for prompt initiation of appropriate antibiotic treatment, a key step in preventing complications associated with typhoid fever.

For individuals residing in high-risk areas or exhibiting symptoms indicative of typhoid fever, the typhoid PCR test at Sprint Diagnostics Centre is an indispensable tool for accurate and timely diagnosis.

4. How is the test performed?

The test involves taking a blood sample from a vein in your arm. The blood sample is then sent to a laboratory, where real-time PCR is performed to amplify and detect any Salmonella typhi DNA present in the sample.

5. How accurate is the Typhoid DNA (By Real Time PCR) - Blood test?

Real-time PCR is a highly sensitive and specific method for detecting the DNA of Salmonella typhi. However, as with any test, the accuracy can be influenced by several factors, such as the quality of the sample collected, the timing of the test in relation to the onset of illness, and the presence of antibiotics in the patient's system.
