TB testing is provided on a drop-in basis only; no appointments are needed. Please review the CLINIC ACCESS page for office hours.
TB Testing requires two visits:
The first visit is to plant the serum on the forearm.
The second visit, usually 48 hours later, is for an examination of the forearm to check for any reaction and to receive documentation.
TB tests planted on Thursdays are never a problem - follow-up access on the weekend will be arranged.
Friday plantings in Abbotsford are read 72 hours later on the Monday.
Week of July 19th: Please note that the offices will be closed on July 22 and 23. TB plantings will only be offered on July 19th in Abbotsford and July 20th in Chilliwack.
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 licenced physician for certain medical circumstances such as diagnostics and pre-biologics testing.
