Hepatitis Panel, Acute with Reflex to HBsAg Confirmation and Reflex to HCV by Quantitative NAAT
Preferred panel to evaluate viral etiology in patients with acute hepatitis. Not recommended for screening asymptomatic patients. Panel includes HAV IgM, HBV core antibody IgM, HBV surface antigen, HCV antibody with reflex to HCV by quantitative NAAT.
Qualitative Chemiluminescent Immunoassay/Quantitative Transcription Mediated Amplification
If reflexed, add 1-3 days
Serum separator tube (SST) or Pink (K2EDTA).
Separate serum from cells ASAP or within 2 hours of collection. Transfer 3 mL serum to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 2.0 mL) Also acceptable: K2EDTA plasma.
Heparinized plasma. Specimens containing particulate material. Heat-inactivated, severely hemolyzed, or lipemic specimens.
After separation from cells: Ambient: Unacceptable; Refrigerated: 5 days; Frozen: 2 months (avoid freeze/thaw cycles)

This panel of tests should not be used for blood donor screening, associated reentry protocols, or for screening human cell, tissues, and cellular and tissue-based products (HCT/P).
Order this panel when the patient has had clinical acute hepatitis of unknown origin for less than six months. 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. If the anti-HCV screening result is low positive or high positive, the Hepatitis C Virus by Quantitative NAAT will be added. Additional charges apply.
80074; if reflexed, add 87341, and 87522
