Tuberculosis (commonly referred to as TB) is a serious infectious bacterial disease that mainly affects the lungs and can spread to the central nervous system, urinary tract and other organs. TB is highly contagious and can be transmitted by simply breathing the air of an infected individual who has sneezed or coughed nearby. This bacterial infection can lead to serious health conditions when left untreated. However, with proper, immediate treatment, TB can be cured.
Many employers require new hires to get tested for TB. There are two ways to get tested- through a skin test or a blood test.
The TB Skin Test requires several visits to your physician's office and is not always accurate as it has been known to provide false-negative and false-positive results.
We do not offer the TB skin test here at Personalabs, but we do offer the TB blood test for the lowest price available online. This test is called the QuantiFERON-TB Test. You will only need to get your blood drawn once and results are accurate using sophisticated technology to measure your immune system's reaction to TB bacteria. What’s even better is that you’ll receive your results electronically and can easily forward them to your employer directly from your account.
