Hepatitis B Testing

Hepatitis B Core Antibody (Anti-HBc), IgG, IgM, Differentiation Test

Price: $71.49
The Hepatitis B IgG, IgM, Differentiation test is used to determine the IgM antibody to Hepatitis B core antigen, which is a reliable marker for acute disease in Hepatitis B viral infection. At times, it is the only one demonstrated for diagnosis of a Hepatitis B infection. Abnormal results may require further evaluation by your physician.

Includes
: Hepatitis B Core Antibody, IgG, IgM, Differentiation
   

Hepatitis B Core Antibody (Anti-HBc), IgM Test

Price: $52.99
The Hepatitis B IgM test is a reliable marker for acute disease in Hepatitis B viral infection, and may be the only one demonstrated for the diagnosis of a Hepatitis B viral infection. Abnormal results may require further evaluation by your physician.

Includes: Hepatitis B Core Antibody, IgM
   

Hepatitis B Core Antibody (Anti-HBc), Total Test

Price: $52.99
The Hepatitis B Total test is used as a differential diagnosis of Hepatitis, also used in conjunction with other B viral serologic markers to assess the stage of a Hepatitis B infection. It may be the only one demonstrated for the diagnosis of a current or past Hepatitis B viral infection. Abnormal results may require further evaluation by your physician.

Includes: Hepatitis B Core Antibody, Total
   

Hepatitis B Disease Monitoring Profile

Price: $102.99

The Hepatitis B Monitoring Profile is designed for monitoring the progression of treatment of infected individuals.

Includes: Hepatitis B Surface Antigen; Hepatitis B Core Antibody, IgM; Hepatitis B Surface Antibody; Liver Function Profile
   

Hepatitis B Profile

Price: $75.49

The Hepatitis B Profile test is useful in determining the staging and prognosis of Hepatitis B infection in patients. Abnormal results may require further evaluation by your physician.

Includes: Hepatitis B Surface Antigen; Hepatitis B Core Antibody, IgM; Hepatitis B Surface Antibody, Quantitative
   

Hepatitis Be Antibody

Price: $57.99

The Hepatitis Be Antibody test determines the appearance of anti-HBe in patients who have been diagnosed HBeAg positive, and could indicate a reduced risk of infectivity. It is useful in determining a differential diagnosis, staging and prognosis of Hepatitis B infection. Failure of appearance implies disease activity and probable chronicity, with carriers showing positive results for either HBeAg or anti-HBe to be less infectious when anti-HBe is present.

Includes: Hepatitis Be Antibody
   

Hepatitis Be Antigen

Price: $57.49

The Hepatitis Be Antigen test detects the Hepatitis B e-antigen (HBeAg), which is associated with an existing or prior HBV infection. It is also used to monitor HBV therapy. A significant deviation from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.

Includes: Hepatitis Be Antigen, serum
   

Hepatitis B Surface Antibody, Quantitative

Price: $52.99

The Hepatitis B Surface Antibody, Quantitative test determines the presence of anti-HBs, which are indicators of clinical recovery and subsequent immunity to Hepatitis B virus.

Includes: Hepatitis B Surface Antibody, Quantitative
   

Hepatitis B Surface Antigen

Price: $52.99

The Hepatitis B Surface Antigen test is useful in the differential diagnosis of Hepatitis B. It is the earliest indicator of the presence of acute infection, which is indicative of chronic infection, though patients who are negative for HBsAg may still have acute type B viral Hepatitis.

Includes: HBsAg; Confirmation of a positive result by neutralization assay
   

Hepatitis B and C Profile Test (Comprehensive)

Price: $131.88
The Hepatitis B and C Profile test is used to evaluate and stage patients for HBV and HCV infection. Abnormal results may require further evaluation by your physician.

FAQ: Hepatitis B

What is Hepatitis B?

Hepatitis B is a viral infection of the liver. The liver becomes inflamed and tender. It may also become swollen. Areas of liver tissue may be destroyed by the inflammation. Hepatitis B is a serious, sometimes severe and even fatal type of Hepatitis.

How Does Hepatitis B Occur?

Hepatitis B is caused by the Hepatitis B virus. You get Hepatitis B by direct contact with the blood or body fluids of an infected person. For example, you can get it from:

  • Having unprotected sex with someone infected with Hepatitis B
  • Sharing needles for drug injection with an infected person
  • Your mother if she had Hepatitis B at the time she gave birth to you
  • Getting a body part pierced or a permanent tattoo with nonsterile equipment.

The disease can be spread by people who do not have any symptoms and may not know they carry the virus. These people are called asymptomatic carriers.

What Are the Symptoms of Hepatitis B?

You may not have any symptoms of Hepatitis B until several weeks or months after you are infected with the virus. Or you may never have any obvious symptoms.
If you have symptoms, the illness usually begins with these flulike symptoms:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Fever
  • General aching
  • Tiredness.

Other early symptoms may include:

  • Itching, sometimes with hives
  • Painful joints
  • Loss of taste for cigarettes if you are a smoker

After several days you may also have these symptoms:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Foul breath and bitter taste in the mouth
  • Dark brown urine
  • Yellowish skin and eyes (jaundice)
  • Pain just below the ribs on your right side, especially if you press on that part of your abdomen
  • Bowel movements that are whitish or light yellow and may be looser than normal.

Some people develop a chronic form of the disease without having any obvious symptoms, even though damage to the liver may be occurring. The symptoms of chronic Hepatitis B may be persistent fatigue, weakness, and loss of appetite, as well as some of the other symptoms listed above.

How is Hepatitis B Diagnosed?

Your health care provider will ask about your medical history and symptoms. Especially important is your history of Hepatitis B risk factors such as IV drug abuse.
Your provider will examine your skin and eyes for signs of Hepatitis B. Your provider will check your abdomen to see if the liver is enlarged or tender.
You will have blood tests. If blood tests show that your liver is not working normally, your provider will do tests to see if you are infected with the Hepatitis B virus.


If your provider thinks you may have chronic Hepatitis B or serious liver damage, or if the diagnosis is uncertain, you may have a liver biopsy. A biopsy is a procedure in which a needle is used to remove a small amount of tissue. This is done through the skin over the liver after the area is numbed with an anesthetic. The sample of tissue is sent to a lab for tests to check for damage to your liver.
