If you’re concerned about tuberculosis (TB), getting tested is the first step towards peace of mind. At Nao Medical, we offer a 2-step PPD test that can help you get your results in just 72 hours. Here’s what you need to know about this test and how it works.
What is a 2-Step PPD Test?
A 2-step PPD test is a type of skin test that checks for TB infection. It involves two separate tests, each administered at least a week apart. The first test is called the initial PPD test, and the second test is called the follow-up PPD test. If both tests are negative, it means you’re not infected with TB. If the second test is positive, it means you’ve been infected with TB at some point in your life.

How long does a 2-step PPD test take?

Is a 2-step PPD test painful?
The test involves a small needle prick, which may cause some discomfort. However, most people find the test to be relatively painless.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for the test?
No special preparation is required for a 2-step PPD test. However, you should let your healthcare provider know if you’ve had a previous positive TB test or if you’ve been in close contact with someone who has TB.
