Hepatitis B Surface Antibody Immunity, Quantitative
Fasting Required: No

Specimen: Blood

Results: 3-5 Business Days

Description:
Hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs), quantitative levels are measured to determine if vaccination is needed and determine if protective immunity has been achieved. The result is given a numerical value. Transfused individuals or hemophiliacs receiving plasma may give false positive tests.

Methodology:
Immunoassay (IA)

Reference Range(s):
=10 mIU/mL

Clinical Significance:
This assay is used to determine immune status for Hepatitis B as =10 mIU/mL as per CDC Guidelines.

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.
