HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGEN TEST
This is the most frequently and easily performed test for hepatitis B
and is the first test to show abnormal results. HBsAg generally indicates
active hepatitis B virus infection.
HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIBODY TEST
This antibody appears approximately 4 weeks after the disappearance of
the surface antigen and signifies the end of the acute infection phase.
HBsAb also signifies immunity to subsequent infections.
HEPATITIS C CORE ANTIBODY TEST
This antibody appears approximately 1 month after infection with HBsAg
and declines over several years. HBcAb is also present in people with
CHLAMYDIA URINE TEST
This test is performed with a simple urine specimen. Using nucleic acid
amplification to detect the presence of the bacterium, this test has been
proven to be much more effective than a swab test, and much less painful.
HIV-1/HIV-2 (HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS TYPE 1 & 2)
ANTIBODY SCREEN WITH WESTERN BLOT CONFIRMATION
If your exposure was over three months ago, this particular test will
look for the antibodies that are produced by your body’s immune
system in response to the virus.
HIV PCR BY DNA
For those people who’s exposure has been more recent, this highly
advanced test can detect minute traces of the virus’s DNA in your
system as early as 72 hours from exposure.
RPR (RAPID PLASMA REAGIN) FOR SYPHILIS
The RPR test is the most common syphilis test performed and is done so
with a blood specimen. If the RPR test comes back positive a confirmatory
test (fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption or FTA-ABS test) will
be performed at no additional charge.
GONORRHEA URINE TEST
As with the Chlamydia test, this test is also performed with a simple
urine specimen. Using nucleic acid amplification to detect the presence
of the bacterium, this test has been proven to be much more effective
than a swab test, and much less painful.
COMPLETE BLOOD COUNT (CBC) WITH DIFFERENTIAL TEST
The CBC and Differential test provide a snapshot of your body’s
immune system and can provide invaluable information that might indicate
a possible infection. White blood cell counts, red blood cell counts,
hemoglobin, hematocrit, and platelet counts are just a few of the indicators
included in this series.
Total Urinary Analysis (UA) involves several routine tests on a urine
specimen. Most bacterial infections can be identified using this test,
even if the infection is not necessarily an STD.
