What is the Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Culture and Sensitivity (C/S) Rapid Test?

The collection of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a test that examines the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord.

CSF functions as a cushion, preventing harm to the brain and spine. Normally, the fluid is transparent. Its consistency is similar to that of water. The test can also determine how much pressure is present in the spinal fluid.

Why done? 

CSF testing may be recommended if your doctor suspects you have a CNS disorder. When to order:

  • You have a brain or spinal cord injury.
  • You have been diagnosed with brain cancer.
  • Your medical history and symptoms point to a CNS disorder.


You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein. 

How does one prepare for the test? 

  • Your chin will be tucked downward, and your legs will be brought up against your chest. Occasionally, the test is performed seated but bent.
  • Inject an anesthetic into the lower spine after cleaning the back.
  • A spinal needle is inserted.
  • Pressure is sometimes taken. A high or low blood pressure can indicate an infection.
  • A sample of 1 to 10 mL of CSF is collected in 4 vials once the needle is positioned.
  • The needle is removed, cleaned, and covered with a bandage. After the exam, you may be instructed to lie down for a while.
