What is QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus?

QFT-Plus is our latest version of the industry-leading IGRA for TB detection, QuantiFERON-TB Gold. QFT-Plus uses the same principle, test procedures, and reliable technology that you trust, but is now optimized with innovative tuberculosis-specific antigens that elicit both CD8+ and CD4+ T cell responses.

QFT-Plus had received U.S. FDA approval and will be made available for sale later this year. Sign up here to receive the latest email updates on the U.S. QFT-Plus product launch.

QFT-Plus technology
