Hepatitis B Surface Antigen
Hepatitis B is a self-containing viral infection attacking the liver. It can be acute and get resolved on its own; or, chronic that may lead to numerous complications and even death. Getting tested for the hepatitis B surface antigen can help identify an active infection. It is an effective tool to screen, diagnose and follow-up on the course of the disease.
It is recommended to test about 2-4 weeks after exposure. After 7 weeks, about 50 % of those infected will no longer be infectious and those who do not remain chronically infected will be HBsAg-negative by 15 weeks after onset of symptoms. This test is a qualitative test and will only provide a positive or negative result.
Results may take 1-3 business days once the specimen is received at the laboratory.
