Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to: The Mississippi Public Health Laboratory (MPHL) currently performs the QuantiFERON-TB Gold (QFT) to aid in the detection of M. tuberculosis infection. QFT is an interferon (IFN) release assay (IGRA) which measures the cell-mediated response to specific TB antigens in whole blood. QFT is a modern alternative to the 110 year old tuberculin skin test (or Mantoux test) and is highly accurate and unaffected by Bacillus Calmette-Gurin (BCG) vaccination (24). Patients may be tested in a single patient visit, with objective results, eliminating the need for two-step testing that is required by the tuberculin skin test. The MPHL would like to purchase reagents that are FDA approved to perform IGRA testing in its laboratory on human patients using the QuantiFERON-TB Gold test.QFT 2 Plate kit: ELISA#0594-0201, estimated quantity 250QFT Reference Lab Pack#0594-0501, estimated quantity 1QFT Multipack (3 Elisa + 600 tubes)#0599-0401, estimated quantity 1QFT tubes (100xniL, 100xTBAG, 100xMit) #T0590-0301, estimated quantity 150QFT Dispenser Pack (4 X 25 ct) #T0597-0403, estimated quantity 1 Explanation of the need to be fulfilled by this item(s) and why it is the only one that can meet the specific needs of the department:The Mississippi Public Health Laboratory (MPHL) currently performs the QuantiFERON-TB Gold to aid in the detection of M. tuberculosis infection on human patients using the Qiagen DS2 instrument.
