Who is this test for?
This test is for anyone who needs to check their Hepatitis immunity status. It does not test for current infection of the virus, nor does it identify whether you can transmit the virus to others. It is used by people who have either had hepatitis B before or by anyone who has been vaccinated.
It can identify the presence of antibodies that will prevent you getting the disease in future or in the case where your immunity status is low, will ensure you receive a booster vaccination. It is useful for the following reasons: –
- If you work in a healthcare role where you are exposed to blood or other bodily fluids
- If you are travelling to a country where it’s prevalent
- If you require the test for a pre-employment or visa medical
- If you need to check your status before arranging for a booster vaccine
How does this test work?
This test uses a blood sample to establish your titre reading. It will help you or a doctor understand if you are currently immune to hepatitis B. It can either be carried out as a home test or clinic test.
Is this test right for me?
This test will only identify your current immunity status to Hepatitis B and will not diagnose if you have hepatitis B at present and need treatment. If you are unsure whether this test is correct for you, please contact our customer services team on 0161 660 2599 to discuss some more.
