Comprehensive assessment of suspected hepatitis A and B infection in at-risk patients. HBeAg indicates active HBV replication. Infectivity is evaluated based on HBeAg and HBsAg. When HBeAg persists much longer than 10 weeks, the patient is likely to develop chronic hepatitis and be a carrier. See Hepatitis in the Infectious Disease chapter, Interpretive Information section. HBeAb appears in the early convalescence of HBV infection. With carrier state and chronic hepatitis, HBeAb may not develop.

Certain reactive HBSAg results are confirmed by neutralization and can
require up to 2 mL of additional specimen. Sample requirement must be
met to prevent a QNS (Quantity Not Sufficient) result.

Reject Criteria: Gross hemolysis or gross Lipemia
