What is a QuantiFERON-TB Gold test?
The QuantiFERON-TB Gold test is an alternative to the skin test that requires a single blood draw and checks for the presence of latent tuberculosis. It is a great alternative for people who test positive on the skin test but do not suspect they have active tuberculosis and want to avoid a chest x-ray. Because this test requires special handling, most lab locations only perform this test during certain hours.

- A lab order from a medical provider

Do I need a separate lab order to get tested?
No. A lab order is authorized by a licensed medical provider in your state and is included in the total.
