What is the Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Culture Test? 

A culture test examines bacteria by growing them on various substrates, and this is to ascertain the presence of specific bacteria. In the tuberculosis culture test instance, the objective is to determine the presence of the tuberculosis bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Typically, the germs are isolated from a sputum sample collected from a patient suspected of having tuberculosis in their lungs. However, tuberculosis can manifest itself in different places of the body. When suspected of extrapulmonary tuberculosis (a disease that occurs outside the lungs), other clinical specimens such as urine can be submitted for evaluation. 1

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is called acid-fast bacilli (AFB) because of its ability to preserve the stain's colour following an acid wash. They can then be viewed through a microscope.
