Hepatitis B Surface Antibody
Surface antigen usually appears in the serum following exposure to Hepatitis B virus and peaks shortly after onset of symptoms. It typically disappears within 1 to 3 months. Persistence of Hepatitis B surface antigen for greater than 6 months is a prognostic indicator of chronic Hepatitis B infection.
Also Known As: Hepatitis B Immunity Test, Hep B Titer
MMR Titer Immunity Test The MMR Titer Immunity test provides quantitative measurements for IgG antibodies to Measles (Rubeola), Mumps, and Rubella. This test is used to determine if a person has protective antibodies to several infectious diseases. Most people in the United States receive MMR vaccinations when they are young. However, the immunity provided by […]
Mumps Antibodies, IgG
IgG is useful in determining whether there is active mumps disease or if there was previous exposure to the virus and if the host is now immune.
Also Known As: Mumps Titer
The pertussis titer is a test that is used to quantitatively measure the amount of protective antibodies, namely IgG antibodies in the blood. This gives an indication of the level of protection and immunity against the bacteria.
Also Known As: Whooping Cough, Bordetella Pertussis Antibodies, IgG
This test measures the titer level of poliovirus type 1 and 3 antibodies in the blood. This gives an indication of the immune status of the patients, and whether they are immune or require a booster vaccination.
Also Known As: Poliovirus Types 1 and 3 Immune Status Antibody
QuantiFERON-TB Blood Test
This blood test is an accurate way to test tuberculosis, a dangerous bacterial disease.
Also Known As: Interferon Gamma Release Assay for Tuberculosis
This test is useful for measuring the host immunity to rabies and assess the need to booster vaccination.
Also Known As: Rabies Neutralizing Abs, Titration, RFFIT
Rubella Antibodies, IgG
This test assess the immune status of the patient to rubella and the need for booster vaccination.
Also Known As: Rubella Titer
Rubeola Antibodies, IgG
This test assess the immune status of the patient to rubeola and the need for booster vaccination.
Also Known As: Rubeola Titer
This test measures the amount of tetanus IgG in the blood. From this, immunity and need for booster vaccination can be determined.
Also Known As: Tetanus Toxin Antibodies
Varicella Zoster Virus Antibodies, IgG
IgG, along with IgM are useful in determining whether there is active VZV disease or if there was previous exposure to the virus.
Also Known As: Chicken Pox Titers, VZV
