Acid-Fast Bacillus Test Market to use digitized content marketing for healthcare

The healthcare vertical is growing at a rapid pace all over. There are hordes of healthcare opportunities available. Digitization is making a constructive entry to the vertical. As such, several life sciences companies are into collaborative innovation and advancements in drug- and diagnostics-related research. As such, the Acid-Fast Bacillus Test Market is bound to climb the digitized pedestal in the years to come.

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.

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.
