More About the Hepatitis B Blood Test

This Hepatitis B blood test measures the blood level of Hepatitis B Surface Antibody in the blood. Hepatitis B is a viral infection that can be transmitted by body fluids and lead to chronic disease. The Hepatitis B vaccine was developed to help prevent this disease and this immunization is now a regular part of childhood and adult vaccination schedules.

This Hepatitis B test (Hepatitis B Vaccine Titer) is frequently used to demonstrate immunity to Hepatitis B, particularly for people who will be working or studying in healthcare organizations or schools. When ordered in this capacity, the hep b titer is frequently ordered with the MMR titer and Varicella titer, all of which are included in the immunity titer panel. Additionally, some people also need to present a negative TB blood test when going through the clearance process for a new school or job.

The hepatitis B surface antibody test is also ordered for other reasons. This blood test is a helpful way to check for immunity in anyone who will be engaging in activities that might lead to an inadvertent exposure to Hepatitis B (e.g. traveling, getting a tattoo).

It is important to note that this lab test is not useful for checking for an actual Hepatitis B infection. For that purpose, a Hepatitis B Surface Antigen test is more helpful, particularly early on after an exposure.
