Needle Stick Injury Protocol Viral Panel Blood Test (Labcorp)
This package includes testing for several bloodborne diseases that pose a risk to workers in the healthcare industry. Healthcare workers are often exposed to the blood or bodily fluids of their patients. They also have the potential for accidental needlesticks or cuts from contaminated instruments. Even when the proper precautions are taken, there is a risk of exposure to infectious diseases such as HIV or viral hepatitis. The CDC recommends that any employer in the healthcare field have a protocol in place to screen for possible infections in the event of potential exposure. Even when the risk of infection is low, it is important to protect the health of both the healthcare workers and their patients. This package includes tests that can detect infection earlier than standard screening tests.
- HIV 4th Gen Antigen/Antibody
- Hepatitis B PCR Quantitative
- Hepatitis C PCR Quantitative
We also offer a Needle Stick Injury Panel which includes routine testing for HIV, Hep B, and Hep C. This package can be used to test for exposures after 4-12 weeks or for repeat testing.
Turnaround for these tests is typically 5-7 business days. Turnaround may be longer if repeat testing is necessary.
