If you’re looking for a more accurate alternative to the PPD test for tuberculosis screening, the QFT T Spot test may be the right choice for you. At Nao Medical, we offer same-day appointments for this test in NYC.
What is the QFT T Spot test?
The QFT T Spot test is a blood test that screens for tuberculosis (TB) infection. Unlike the PPD test, which requires two visits to a healthcare provider and has a high rate of false positives, the QFT T Spot test only requires one visit and has a higher accuracy rate.
How does the QFT T Spot test work?
The QFT T Spot test measures the immune response to TB bacteria by detecting the release of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) from T cells in response to TB antigens. A positive result indicates that the person has been infected with TB bacteria, but it does not necessarily mean that they have active TB disease.
