Chemiluminescent Immunoassay (CLIA)
Detection of IgM antibody to Hepatitis A. A positive result indicates a current or recent hepatitis A virus infection. Anti-HAV IgM is usually detectable for 3 to 6 months after the onset of illness. 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.
* Reference ranges may change over time. Please refer to the original patient report when evaluating results.
