Hepatitis A is commonly transferred through contact with human stool, typically resulting from improper hand washing. This is the least severe form, usually involving flu-like symptoms, then going away on its own.  Most people who have been infected develop antibodies which provide protection from catching Hep A again.  These antibodies can also be present as a result of vaccination.   

Hepatitis B and C are most commonly acquired through exposure to blood and bodily fluids of an infected person, and each can involve a wide variance of symptoms that are generally flu-like. Hepatitis B and C testing are strongly encouraged if you believe you're at risk to mitigate possible long-term complications.

This package is typically ordered as a routine screening or when someone believes they may have been exposed to one or more forms of Hepatitis.  It may also be ordered when a person has symptoms of liver disease to help determine if Hepatitis infection may be the cause.

Turnaround time 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 tests in this package are most effective at 12 weeks from exposure or any time after.  Some people may be detectable as early as 4 weeks.

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.
