Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

The AFB stain test is a diagnostic test used to identify the presence of acid-fast bacilli (AFB) in a patient's sample. The test can be used to diagnose tuberculosis (TB) or other mycobacterial infections.

The AFB stain test is used to detect the presence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacteria that cause tuberculosis (TB). This test can be used to diagnose TB in a person who has symptoms of the disease or to screen for TB in people who are at high risk for developing the disease.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of tuberculosis, it is important to get tested as soon as possible. Symptoms of tuberculosis include:

-A cough that lasts more than three weeks
-Weight loss
-Fever
-Night sweats
-Chills
-Fatigue

If you have been in close contact with someone who has tuberculosis, you should also get tested.

The normal range for the AFB stain test is 0-9 acid-fast bacilli per 100 oil immersion fields. A positive result is defined as 10 or more acid-fast bacilli per 100 oil immersion fields.

There are a few different ways that you can lower your AFB stain test level.

  • The first way is to increase the amount of time that the sample is incubated. This will help to break down the AFB and lower the overall level of the stain.
  • Another way to lower your AFB stain test level is to use a decolorizer. This will help to remove some of the colors from the sample, which will in turn reduce the level of the stain.
  • Finally, you can also dilute the sample with water, which will help to reduce the intensity of the stain.
