Hepatitis A Virus (HAV) antibodies indicate prior or acute infection with, or immunization to, Hepatitis A virus.
Dietary supplements containing biotin may interfere in
assays and may skew analyte results to be either falsely
high or falsely low. For patients receiving the recommended
daily doses of biotin, draw samples at least 8 hours following
the last biotin supplementation. For patients on mega-doses
of biotin supplements, draw samples at least 72 hours
following the last biotin supplementation.
