Hepatitis B Surface Antibody Testing

Hepatitis B Immunity Test
$49.00
Sample Report
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

This test is used to determine the status of a person’s immunity to the Hepatitis B virus (Heb B).  Immunity is determined by screening for antibodies which provide protection against infection. The results for this test are quantitative.

Hepatitis B is a viral infection of the liver spread through contact with contaminated bodily fluids including blood.  Transmission can occur through various types of exposure including sexual contact.  It is possible for a pregnant woman to spread the infection to her infant during childbirth.  More than half of Hep B infections display no symptoms.  When symptoms do occur, the most common are loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain, jaundice, and dark colored urine.  Chronic Hepatitis B infections may lead to the development of Cirrhosis or Liver Cancer.

A person can have immunity to Hepatitis B for several reasons.

1.)  They have been vaccinated for Hep B.  Vaccinations do not always provide permanent immunity.  It is possible for a person to have been vaccinated and lose their immunity over time. 

2.)  They have been infected with Hep B, recovered, and now have a natural immunity.  Because Hepatitis B does not always display symptoms, it is possible for a person to have been exposed and not be aware of it.

The Hepatitis B Surface Antibody test is typically ordered by people who wish to know the status of their immunity for personal reasons or are required to present verification of their immune status.  A record of immunity may be required for work, school, or travel. 

A person who wished to screen for a current Hepatitis B infection, may wish to order the Hep B Surface Antigen test.

The Hepatitis B Surface Antibody test typically sees results in 1 business day.

Incubation Period:

The incubation period varies but ranges between 3-12 weeks. 

Requirements:

This Hepatitis B immunity blood testing does not have any special requirements.
