The Hepatitis A & B Titer Test panel contains 5 tests with 6 biomarkers.

Brief Description: The Hepatitis A & B Titer Test Panel is a comprehensive diagnostic tool designed to evaluate an individual's immunity status or infection presence for Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B viruses. This panel combines serological assays that measure specific antibodies and antigens associated with Hepatitis A and B, providing crucial insights for clinical diagnosis, vaccination verification, and the assessment of immune response post-vaccination or post-exposure.

Collection Method: Blood Draw

Specimen Type: Serum

Test Preparation: No preparation required

When and Why the Panel May Be Ordered

The Hepatitis A & B Titer Test Panel is ordered in various scenarios, including:

  • Prior to vaccination to determine existing immunity.
  • After vaccination to verify successful immunization.
  • Following suspected exposure to Hepatitis A or B to ascertain infection status.
  • During routine health screenings for individuals at risk of Hepatitis infections.
  • As part of pre-employment health checks, especially for healthcare workers.

What the Hepatitis A & B Titer Test Panel Checks For

Detected Conditions and Diseases

This panel is instrumental in diagnosing:

  • Hepatitis A: An acute liver infection caused by the Hepatitis A virus, often transmitted through ingestion of contaminated food or water.

  • Hepatitis B: A potentially chronic liver infection resulting from the Hepatitis B virus, which can be transmitted through blood, semen, or another body fluid from an infected person.

Clinical Applications

Healthcare professionals utilize the results from the Hepatitis A & B Titer Test Panel to:

  • Determine the need for vaccination against Hepatitis A and B.
  • Confirm successful immunization in individuals who have been vaccinated.
  • Diagnose acute or previous infections of Hepatitis A and B.
  • Guide treatment decisions and monitor the effectiveness of therapeutic interventions for Hepatitis B infections.

The Hepatitis A & B Titer Test Panel is a critical component in the management and prevention of Hepatitis A and B infections. By providing a detailed profile of an individual’s immune status and infection history, this panel aids healthcare providers in making informed decisions regarding vaccination, treatment, and preventive strategies, ultimately contributing to the control and elimination of these infectious diseases.

We advise having your results reviewed by a licensed medical healthcare professional for proper interpretation of your results.
