What is Modified Acid-Fast Stain Test?

This test yields two types of results depending on the type of bacteria found in the culture. The end result is either an acid-fast stain or a modified acid-fast stain. The type of results obtained is determined by the bacteria tested.

Sputum, or phlegm, is frequently used to test for Mycobacterium tuberculosis and determine whether a patient has TB. This bacterium is completely acid-fast, which means that the dye is retained throughout the cell. A positive acid-fast stain test result confirms the patient's TB.

Why it is done?

This test can be ordered by your doctor to determine whether you have tuberculosis (TB) or another type of bacterial infection.
