What is Diphtheria Culture Test?

The Diphtheria Culture test is used to detect the presence of Corynebacterium diphtheria bacteria. When diphtheria is suspected, this test is performed. Diphtheria is a potentially fatal bacterial infection of the respiratory tract. These bacteria can be found in the nose, throat, and skin. Clinical specimens for culture are collected from the nose or nasopharynx, as well as the throat, of all suspected cases and their close contacts. Swabs from beneath the membrane are also taken, or a piece of the membrane is removed. When diphtheria is suspected, specimens for culture are obtained.

Why it is done?

This test allows doctors to determine whether the bacteria C diphtheriae, which causes diphtheria, is present. When diphtheria bacilli are isolated, the presence of the toxin-producing gene is checked. A variety of in vitro and in vivo tests are used to determine the toxigenicity of C diphtheriae.

What is the procedure for Diphtheria Culture Test?

The patient is asked to open his or her mouth and tilt his or her head back. The doctor will use a tongue depressor to press the tongue down and examine the mouth and throat.

How does one prepare for the test? 

Before undergoing the test, patients should avoid using any antiseptic mouthwash. Patients must notify their doctor if they are taking any antibiotics, as this may interfere with the tests. The patient should not gargle prior to the throat culture. Before the procedure begins, the patient's immunisation history is also checked.
