Test Details

Synonyms

  • Reference, AFB Culture, Identification

Use

Identify acid-fast bacteria referred from another laboratory that has performed the culture of the clinical sample

Methodology

Identification by DNA probes and/or nucleic acid sequencing. (Organisms not identified by DNA probes will have additional charges for identification by nucleic acid sequencing.)

Specimen Requirements

Specimen

Isolated acid-fast bacillus on agar or egg-based media; broth systems with AFB (make sure it is not contaminated with other bacteria)

Container

Screw-cap agar slant tube and bacterial swab transport inoculated with isolated colonies from a pure culture packed as an etiologic agent or liquid-based broth tube from BD, bioMerieux, or Trek

Storage Instructions

Maintain specimen at room temperature.

Causes for Rejection

Specimen received leaking or in broken transport tube or vial; unlabeled or name discrepancy between specimen and request label
