What is a QuantiFERON-TB Gold Test (QFT)?

A useful alternative to the TB skin test is the QuantiFERON-TB Gold Test (QFT). This blood test requires only one clinic visit. It is a highly sensitive test that detects the presence of tuberculosis, and is not influenced by the BCG vaccine. When you or your child has the QuantiFERON-TB Gold Test for tuberculosis at a Physicians Immediate Care clinic, results are typically available in just a few days.
