TB is highly contagious and is spread through the air when an individual coughs or sneezes.

Some symptoms of Tuberculosis are:

  • Coughing that lasts three or more weeks
  • Coughing up blood
  • Chest pain, or pain with breathing or coughing
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Fever, chills
  • Night sweats
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss (unintentional)

The TB Skin Test requires several visits to your physician’s office and is not always accurate as it has been known to provide false-negative and false-positive results. With the QuantiFERON-TB Test, you will only need to get your blood drawn once and results are accurate using sophisticated technology to measure your immune system’s reaction to TB bacteria.

Fasting is not required.

QFT-Plus is a highly accurate test with >97% specificity for detection of TB infection.

QFT-Plus TB skin test
One visit to the doctor Two visits to the doctor
A small sample of blood is taken Tuberculin is injected into the skin
Results are unaffected by the prior TB (BCG)vaccination Results may be affected by the BCG vaccine
Results determined in a laboratory Results determined by subjective/visual assessment

How are QFT-Plus results interpreted?

QFT-Plus is one of the many tools your doctor may use to determine whether TB infection is present.

There are three possible QFT-Plus results:

  • Positive – suggests that TB infection is likely
  • Negative – suggests that TB infection is unlikely
  • Indeterminate – suggests the need for further investigations or repeat testing

Your healthcare provider will explain your QFT-Plus results to you. In addition to your QFT-Plus result, your healthcare provider will take into account essential information such as your medical history, your risk of exposure to TB, and other clinical results that may be ordered.
