TB Testing requires two visits:
Planting: The first visit is to plant the serum on the forearm**.
Reading: The second visit, usually 48 hours later, is for an examination of the forearm to check for any reaction and to receive documentation.

Bottom Line: The test must read (i.e., arm examined) during the 48 to 72-hour window following the first visit.
Most TB tests are $50. The cost of the serum is waived with a written referral from a licensed physician for certain medical circumstances such as diagnostics and pre-biologics testing.
