Details

A Blood Culture is used to detect the presence of bacteria or fungi in the body.  It is common to order up to 3 cultures in succession as a single test may not yield conclusive results.

Blood cultures are used to detect the presence of bacteria or fungi in the blood, to identify the type present, and to guide treatment. Testing is used to identify a blood infection (septicemia) that can lead to sepsis, a serious and life-threatening complication.  Symptoms can include but are not limited to fever, chills, nausea, rapid heartbeat or breathing, confusion, decreased urine output, a drop in blood pressure, or inflammation throughout the body.

Customers who require more than one blood culture should consult with their doctor to determine the best place on the body for blood to be drawn from.  The optimum draw site may be different depending on the suspected source of the infection.  Blood draws for multiple cultures should be performed no less than 30 minutes apart.
