These tests are: ABO Group / Blood Type test, Chlamydia & Gonorrhea, Hepatitis B Surface Antibody Test or HBsAb , HIV 1/2 Antigen & Antibodies Test (4th generation w/ Reflexes), MMR (IgG) Panel Test (Measles , Mumps. Rubella).
Preparation: No special preparation is needed for this test. No fasting is needed.
ABO Group test checks your blood type. It identifies a person’s blood group (A,B,AB OR D) and whether you are antigen RH positive for this test or RH negative. The RH type antigen is a protein that affects what type of blood you can donate or receive.
Knowing your blood type prior to giving or receiving a blood transfusion is important to avoid serious complications for the recipient, it is also necessary for a successful organ transplant. Pregnant women should know their RH factor to monitor compatibility with their fetus.
Chlamydia & Gonorrhea Urine Test detects the bacteria that causes infections with Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are both common sexually transmitted diseases (STD's) that often do not show any symptoms.
When detected both Chlamydia and Gonorrhea can be treated with antibiotics.
Periodic testing is recommended for men and women who are sexually active.
- For a woman that has symptoms including pain or burning when urinating, increased/abnormal vaginal discharge, or abdominal pain or bleeding between periods
-For a man that has symptoms including burning after urination or ejaculation, itching of the penis, white, yellow, or green discharge from the penis, or swollen testicles
Hepatitis B Surface Antibodies (HBsAb) Test or Anti-HBs is used to help identify if a person has developed immunity to the hepatitis B virus (either by infection or vaccination).
Hepatitis B Surface Antibodies Test is a qualitative test meaning that it will result in positive (reactive) or negative (nonreactive) to the virus, it is a test normally required when applying to a new job or school.
Hepatitis B is a viral infection of the liver spread through contact with contaminated bodily fluids (including blood). More than half of Hep B infections display no symptoms
HIV-1/2 Antigen and Antibodies Test, a 4th generation test, is designed as an aid to diagnose HIV-1/HIV-2 infection including primary HIV1 infection.
HIV infection is transmitted by sex and by sharing needles, although not curable it is manageable with medication. HIV weakens a persons immune system and may lead to AIDS.
Blood antibodies to HIV ½ implies that immune system has been previously exposed to it.
Current guidelines suggest that everyone should get a HIV test at least once.
The MMR panel measures the level of antibodies that the body makes due to presence of infection or in response to the vaccine against Measles, Mumps and Rubella.
The test is useful if you are not sure that you have received the vaccination or need to prove their immunity from prior vaccinations. This can serve as evidence of immunity for students, international travelers, and anyone else required to prove that they can’t start an outbreak of the highly contagious conditions.
