What is this test?

AFB MTb- Kanamycin test, also known as Acid Fast Bacilli MYb- Kanamycin or AFB Sensitivity- Kanamycin Antibiogram Infected Tissue, measures the level of sensitivity of an infected tissue to Kanamycin. It detects drug resistant tuberculosis. It measures the level of sensitivity of the infected tissue to kanamycin. The response of the patient to a drug can be predicted. It helps in detecting drug resistant tuberculosis. Cotton dipped in alcohol will be used to clean the surface of the skin. With the help of the injection, a syringe will be filled with your blood. Cotton dipped in alcohol is given to help clotting. The doctor might also require a urine sample. In that case, a sterile, brand new cup will be given and you will be required to provide the doctor with your urine sample in it. Antibiotic sensitivity or antibiotic susceptibility is the susceptibility of bacteria to antibiotics. Because susceptibility can vary even within a species (with some strains being more resistant than others), antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) is usually carried out to determine which antibiotic will be most successful in treating a bacterial infection in vivo. Testing for antibiotic sensitivity is often done by the Kirby-Bauer method. Small wafers containing antibiotics are placed onto a plate upon which bacteria are growing. If the bacteria are sensitive to the antibiotic, a clear ring, or zone of inhibition, is seen around the wafer indicating poor growth.
