What is this test?

A sputum culture is a sample of the gooey substance that often comes up from your chest when you have an infection in your lungs or airways. It is mostly made up of white blood cells that fight infection mixed with germs. Doctors use it to figure out what might be causing your illness, whether it’s bacteria, a virus or something else.

Test Preparations

Ideal sample for collection is early morning before eating.

Use ONLY water when rinsing mouth.
