2452: Hepatitis B Core Antibody, Total Print View
Hepatitis B Core Ab Total IA  Nonreactive   

PRIMARY
1 Serum 1 (0.5) mL   Room Temperature - 5 Day(s)/Refrigerated - 14 Day(s)/Frozen - 30 Day(s)  
ALTERNATE
  Plasma EDTA 1 (0.5) mL   Room Temperature - 5 Day(s)/Refrigerated - 14 Day(s)/Frozen - 30 Day(s)  

This assay does not distinguish between Total B core antibody IgG and IgM detected before or at the onset of symptoms; however, such reactivity can persist for years after illness, and may even outlast anti-HBs. Occasionally Hepatitis B core antibody may be the only marker of either current or past Hepatitis B infection.
