Description : Tuberculin 5tu is a Purified Protein Derivative used for intradermal tuberculin testing prepared from a large Master Batch Connaught Tuberculin and is a cell-free purified protein fraction obtained from a human strain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. To buy ‘Tuberculin 5tu’ or to know its price contact India’s leading Wholesaler and Exporter 3S Corporation.
Side Effect : Induration at the Tuberculin 5tu injection site is the expected reaction for a positive skin test.
Dosage : Tubersol is indicated as an aid in the detection of infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. For the initial intracutaneous tuberculin test it is customary to use 5 US units (TU) per test dose of 0.1 mL. The 1 TU per test dose (0.1 mL) preparation is used for individuals suspected of being highly sensitized since larger initial doses may result in severe skin reactions. The preparation containing 250 TU per test dose (0.1 mL), should be used exclusively for the testing of individuals who fail to react to a previous injection of 5 TU and under no circumstances is it to be used for the initial injection.
Storage : Store at 2° to 8°C (35° to 46°F). Do not freeze. Discard the product if exposed to freezing.
