This assay is specifically designed to detect medically relevant atypical Mycobacterium along with their species to help in deciding the therapy as precribed by American thoracic society guideline for Non-tuberculous Mycobacterium. There are over 170 recognized species of mycobacteria which are identified with the help of MALDITOF. Many of these species are human pathogens and therefore, identification to the species level is important to help guide the patient. NTM are broadly divided into two types – Rapid growers & Slow growers.

CULTURE MYCOBACTERIUM ATYPICAL (NON TUBERCULOUS MYCOBACTERIUM-NTM) Test Cost INR: 2925 Symptoms Diagnosis

Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are a group of bacteria that are commonly found in the environment, such as soil, water, and dust. These bacteria can also be found in animals, including pets and livestock. Although most people are exposed to NTM on a daily basis, they rarely cause illness in healthy individuals. However, people with weakened immune systems or chronic lung disease may be at risk of developing an NTM infection.

One of the most common methods of diagnosing NTM infections is through a culture test. This test involves growing the bacteria in a laboratory setting to identify its specific type and determine the appropriate treatment. DNA Labs India offers a culture mycobacterium atypical (NTM) test for a cost of INR 2925.

Symptoms of NTM Infections

The symptoms of an NTM infection can vary depending on the type of bacteria and the location of the infection. In general, NTM infections can cause symptoms similar to those of tuberculosis, such as:

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Night sweats
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain

NTM infections can also cause skin and soft tissue infections, lymph node infections, and infections of the bones and joints. Symptoms of these types of infections may include:

  • Pain or swelling in the affected area
  • Redness or warmth around the affected area
  • Fever
  • Night sweats
  • Weight loss

Diagnosing NTM Infections

Diagnosing an NTM infection can be challenging because the symptoms are similar to those of other respiratory infections, such as pneumonia and tuberculosis. In addition, NTM bacteria are slow-growing, which means that it can take several weeks for a culture test to provide a definitive diagnosis.

If you are experiencing symptoms of an NTM infection, your doctor may order a chest X-ray, CT scan, or other imaging tests to look for signs of infection in your lungs. They may also perform a sputum culture test, which involves coughing up mucus from your lungs for analysis in a laboratory setting.

The culture mycobacterium atypical (NTM) test offered by DNA Labs India is a highly accurate method of diagnosing NTM infections. This test involves growing the bacteria in a laboratory setting and identifying its specific type to determine the appropriate treatment.

Conclusion

If you are experiencing symptoms of an NTM infection, it is important to seek medical attention promptly. Early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent complications and improve your chances of a full recovery. The culture mycobacterium atypical (NTM) test offered by DNA Labs India is a highly accurate and affordable method of diagnosing NTM infections.
