Tuberculosis Testing

In some circumstances, you may need to have a test to check for latent TB – where you've been infected with TB bacteria, but do not have any symptoms.

Mantoux test Glasgow

Mantoux test

The Mantoux test is a widely used test for latent TB. It involves injecting a small amount of a substance called PPD tuberculin into the skin of your forearm. It's also called the tuberculin skin test (TST).

You will have to return to the clinic (or send us a picture of your arm) 48 to 72 hours after having the test for us to read the reaction.

Fee - £100

QuantiFERON-TB Gold (QFT) is a simple blood test that aids in the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacteria which causes tuberculosis (TB).

QFT is an interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) release assay, commonly known as an IGRA, and is a modern alternative to the tuberculin skin test (TST, PPD or Mantoux).
