If the district you are working with is requiring a TB test, either a TB skin test or a TB blood test will be accepted for a TB test.
The TB skin test may also be referred to as a Mantoux test, tuberculin skin test, or a PPD. Any of these forms will be accepted as a TB skin test. The TB blood test may be either a T-SPOT TB test (T-Spot) or a QuantiFERON-TB Gold In-Tube test (QFT-GIT).
If unable to acquire TB skin test or a TB blood test, a Chest X-ray is also acceptable for the TB test.
