QuantiFERON Gold TB Test


Additional information


QurantiFERON Gold is a newer generation blood test that screens for tuberculosis (TB)—both latent and active tuberculosis infections. Tuberculosis is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis and leads to an infectious respiratory illness of the lungs.
Some people are at higher risk for it, e.g. if you had close contact with someone with TB, traveled to certain places, or have a weak immune system (e.g. people with HIV).
