TB/PPD Skin Test
The tuberculosis/purified protein derivative skin test, commonly referred to as a TB/PPD skin test, is the most common tuberculosis screening. This test is performed by a healthcare provider administering a small amount of PPD under a person’s skin, and then the person returns in 2-3 days to have the test results evaluated.
Our registration process for a TB skin test is easy. Just select the clinic location based on ZIP code and complete the registration. An authorization barcode is immediately sent to you via email and texted directly to the phone of the person being tested along with a map of the clinic location. The registrant can then walk into the testing facility, show the barcode along with photo ID, and complete the test. Results for tests are quick and stored securely in our online portal. Individuals and employers can register online or call (888) 378-2499 to order tests.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Do You Get TB?
Tuberculosis is caused by a bacteria known as mycobacterium tuberculosis, which is transmitted via air when a person with a tuberculosis infection coughs, talks, or sneezes. This disease is highly contagious.
How Does a TB Test Work?
A healthcare professional will administer a PPD injection under the person’s skin. About 48-72 hours after the injection, the person will return to the healthcare provider for TB test results. The healthcare provider will check the PPD injection site for a reaction and determine if the results are negative or positive.
