Interpretive Data
This panel of assays should not be used for blood donor screening, associated re-entry protocols, or for screening Human Cell, Tissues and Cellular and Tissue-Based Products (HCT/P).

Order this panel when the patient is known to have chronic hepatitis B infection to determine the degree of infection and monitor the development of immunity. If results for HBsAg are repeatedly reactive with an index value between 1.00 and 50.00, then HBsAg Confirmation will be added. Additional charges apply.
