The Acid-Fast Bacillus (AFB) Culture test is a medical test that helps identify the presence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium responsible for causing tuberculosis (TB) disease.

The AFB test involves taking a sample of sputum, urine, or other bodily fluids and growing it in a special medium that promotes the growth of the bacteria. The bacteria are then stained with a special dye that makes them visible under a microscope.

Who Is Recommended For the Test?

This test is recommended for individuals who have symptoms of TB such as -

  • Coughing,

It is also recommended for people at higher risk of developing TB, such as those with weakened immune systems due to HIV infection or certain medical conditions.
