Hepatitis A testing is easy and fast. Our CLIA-certified testing centerss will take a small sample of your blood and test it for the hepatitis A virus with our Hepatitis A Antibody test. This blood test searches for antibodies to the hepatitis A virus. This allows us to diagnose acute hepatitis A infections. With more than 4,500 conveniently located testing centers nationwide, testing only takes a few minutes. No undressing or swabbing is necessary, and your results are emailed to you within 1-2 business days.
A positive hepatitis A test result means that antibodies to the hepatitis A virus have been found in your blood; and therefore, that you have an acute hepatitis A infection. A negative hepatitis A test result means that no hepatitis A virus antibodies were found in your system, and therefore, the hepatitis A virus is not present. In about 50 percent of adult cases of hepatitis A, antibodies are found in the blood, however these antibodies were the result of a previous infection that was previously defeated by the body.
