Chemiluminescent Immunoassay (CLIA)
This assay detects the presence of Hepatitis A specific antibodies (IgG + IgM). A non-reactive result indicates a lack of immunity to Hepatitis A infection. A reactive result indicates either vaccination, past infection, or current infection. To screen for current infection, the Hepatitis A Antibody, IgM assay should be ordered (order code HAMAB).
The performance of this assay has not been established with cord blood, neonatal specimens, cadaver specimens, heat-inactivated samples or body fluids other than serum.
