Acid-Fast bacilli smear and culture are two separate tests performed together to test for tuberculosis. It refers to the microscopic examination of a fluorochrome stain of a clinical specimen. The Acid-Bacilli is the inoculation of a clinical specimen on a mycobacteria growth indicator and a Lowenstein-Jensen (L-J) media slant. Tuberculosis is a serious health problem in many countries globally. It is also prevalent in countries that have preventive measures set up to avoid the disease in the community.
Tuberculosis can occur in any anatomical site and thus, specimens other than the sputum such as urine, cerebrospinal fluid, pleural fluid, pus or biopsy specimens are submitted for Acid-Fast Bacillus test.
Two procedures are most commonly used for acid-fast staining: Carbolfuschin method (includes Zeil-Neelson and Kinyoun Methods), which come under direct microscopy and the Flurochrome procedure that uses auramine-O or auramine-rhodamine dyes (Fluorescent microscopy). In the case of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB), positive results of acid-fast bacillus test convert to negative within three months of effective therapy.

The disappearance of acid-fast bacilli from sputum smears is used to access the response to therapy. Further, physicians might make inappropriate management decisions by misinterpreting the positive smear results.
Drivers and Restraints for Acid-Fast Bacillus Test market
Tuberculosis, being one of the deadliest diseases, infects one-fourth of the world’s population. The increasing prevalence of tuberculosis globally is one of the leading factors that drives the acid-fast bacillus test market. However, the reduction of smear sensitivity is further reduced in patients with extra-pulmonary TB, being relatively insensitive.
Geographically, the global market for acid-fast bacillus test can be segmented into the following regions – North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Japan and Middle-East & Africa. Asia Pacific leads the global acid-fast bacillus testing market due to the high number of TB cases.
Increasing healthcare expenditure and out of pocket expenditures in Asia Pacific are factors responsible for the growth of the Asia Pacific Market. Latin America and Middle-East and Africa are expected to follow Asia Pacific, owing to the prevalence of tuberculosis in these regions.

More About the Report –
Unprecedented access to a world of information has given rise to the empowered, albeit distrustful, consumer. So is the case with healthcare, where the patient has been rendered more informed and conscientious thanks to the extraordinary penetration of the Internet. The discerning patient now demands more affordable, sophisticated, transparent, and personalized healthcare services, creating the need for new models for care.
The advent of health information technology (HIT) components such as electronic health records (EHR), hospital information systems (HIS), picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), and vendor-neutral archives (VNA) has had just as transformational an impact on the overall healthcare sector as the concerns regarding security and privacy. Data theft, undue access to personal health records, and cyber-attacks are very real threats that the healthcare sector faces today.
