Acute Hepatitis Panel

The Acute Hepatitis Panel is designed to help detect early exposure to the 3 most common Hepatitis Viruses.  The tests in this package look for indicators which will typically be present after a recent infection with Hepatitis A, B or C.  This package includes:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Joint Pain
  • Nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain
  • Jaundice
  • Dark-colored urine or pale stool
  • Itching and skin irritation

Hepatitis testing can also be done when someone is concerned they have recently had an exposure even if they are not currently experiencing symptomsHepatitis A is typically spread through exposure to fecal matter or contaminated water or food.  Hepatitis B is spread through infected blood or bodily fluids, usually through sexual contact.  Hepatitis C is typically spread through contaminated blood by sharing needles for intravenous drug use, using improperly sterilized tattoo or piercing equipment and sexual contact.

Turnaround time for the Acute Hepatitis Panel is typically 1 business day.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Incubation Period:

The detection period for these tests is typically 4-12 weeks after exposure. 

Requirements:

It is recommended that someone taking Biotin (also known as vitamin B7 or B8, vitamin H, or coenzyme R) stop consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection of a sample.
