  • Hepatitis B Surface Antigen (HBsAg) are produced in the body by the hepatitis B virus. It is a virus which causes a liver infection and is spread from contact with the blood and bodily fluids of an infected person. HBsAg tests are used to diagnose if a person is currently infectious.

  • Hepatitis C Antibodies (HCAg) are produced by the immune system after exposure to hepatitis C. Hepatitis C is a virus which causes a liver infection and is spread from contact with the blood of an infected person. HCAg tests are used to determine whether a person has previously been exposed to hepatitis C.

  • HIV 1&2 antibodies are produced by the immune system after exposure to HIV. HIV 1&2 antibodies tests are used to measure the presence of antibodies being produced in response to the presence of HIV. Levels of the viral p24 protein are present in the blood serum of newly infected individuals during the short period between infection and seroconversion, making p24 antigen assays useful in diagnosing primary HIV infection.

  • Syphilis IgM/IgG are produced by the immune system during and after exposure to syphilis. IgM are antibodies that are the first form of response to syphilis and are used to indicate current infection. IgG are antibodies that are produced after exposure to syphilis and are used as an indicator of long-term immunity that the body creates.
