More About the EBV Blood Test

The Epstein-Barr antibody panel, also known as the Epstein Barr virus test and the EBV blood test, measures the blood level of Esptein-Barr antibodies.

The Epstein-Barr virus, abbreviated to EBV, causes an illness known as infectious mononucleosis (mono). Also called human herpesvirus 4 (HHV-4), the EBV is spread through contamination from the droplets of someone with an EBV infection and also through sexual activity. Symptoms of an EBV infection include feeling tired, swollen / painful glands and lymph nodes and a fever.

This Epstein-Barr test is sometimes used as a more conclusive confirmatory test for people who get the mono test and want added confirmation. According to the CDC, approximately 90% of adults will have positive antibodies that demonstrate a past or current infection and, as such, positive lab results should be correlated with clinical symptoms.
