What is this test?

Amniotic Fluid culture and sensitivity is a technique predominantly used to test the sensitivity of the anaerobic bacteria, which can infect the amniotic fluid in the pregnant women and can cause birth defects. This test is done on pregnant women to confirm the bacterial infection of amniotic fluid.

What is Amniotic Fluid:

Amniotic fluid is a clear, slightly yellow colored liquid that surrounds, protects, and nourishes the unborn baby (fetus) during pregnancy. This liquid is within the amniotic sac and allows a fetus to move freely within the uterus. The fetus swallows and inhales this liquid and then releases it.

What are Bacteria, and Anaerobic Bacteria:

Bacteria are the single-celled micro-organisms that can live within the soil, in the ocean and also inside the human gut. They have a number of shapes such as spirals, rods, and spheres etc. Some bacteria can cause illness to the human body and some other plays a major role in the overall functioning of our ecosystem.

Anaerobic bacteria are the bacteria that can not survive in the presence of oxygen. Some of the examples of anaerobic bacteria are Staphylococcus, E.Coli, Clostridium, Actinomyces, Acetobacterium, etc. Anaerobic infections can occur when deep tissues are injured or exposed. This can occur due to surgery or trauma, etc.

Why this test is performed:

This test is performed as part of prenatal testing to diagnose a chromosomal abnormality or genetic disorder. If you have a family history or high risk of inherited disease or chromosomal abnormalities, you may also be advised to perform this test. This test is also recommended if you have an abnormal fetal ultrasound. This test helps to identify the possible diseases of a newborn baby.

This test also helps the doctors to plan the treatment according to the type of bacteria, that infects the amniotic fluid. The test is also performed to check the effectiveness of the treatment.
