What is the Albert Stain Test?

The presence of Corynebacterium diphtheriae can be detected with the aid of the Albert stain. Bacteria of this type cause diphtheria.

Why Done? 

The main symptom of diphtheria is a sore throat and the formation of a grey layer on the throat; skin ulcerations may develop in a few cases. Other symptoms include:

  • High temperature 
  • Throat discomfort 
  • Difficulty to swallow 
  • Tonsillitis
  • Irritation in the heart
  • Ulcers


It is crucial for the patient to lie down on a bed with their head bent back in order for the technician to obtain a throat swab from behind their throat. After coloring the slide, the swab is used to prepare a smear for microscopic examination. After collecting the swab, the throat may hurt slightly.

How does one prepare for the test? 

There are no extra preparations required before taking this test. However, because the disease is very contagious, extreme caution should be exercised while dealing with the infected person's nasopharyngeal secretions or skin ulcerations or when handling their clothing. Fasting is not required before the test.
