Hepatitis B Surface Antigen
Assay results may be used as an aid in the determination of susceptibility to hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection for individuals prior to or following HBV vaccination, or where vaccination status is unknown. Assay results may be used with other HBV serological markers for the laboratory diagnosis of HBV disease associated with HBV infection. A reactive assay result will allow a differential diagnosis in individuals displaying signs and symptoms of hepatitis in whom etiology is unknown.
Assay performance characteristics have not been established for the use of the Elecsys Anti‑HBs assay as an aid in determining susceptibility to HBV infection prior to or following vaccination in infants, children, or adolescents.
