What does the Viral Marker test detect?

The viral marker blood test identifies the specific markers in the blood for Hepatitis B (HBsAg), Hepatitis C (HCV), and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Here is what the viral marker test identifies and assesses:

  • HBSAG (Hepatitis B Surface Antigen)- The viral market test identifies the presence of the Hepatitis B Surface Antigen in the blood. This antigen is a protein on the surface of the Hepatitis B virus. A positive result shows active Hepatitis B infection.
  • HCV (Hepatitis C Virus)- For Hepatitis C, the test identifies Hepatitis C antibodies or viral components indicative of a current or past infection.
  • HIV Antibody, Rapid Card- For HIV markers, the test detects antibodies produced by the immune system in response to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. A positive result means exposure to the virus, but confirmatory tests are usually needed for a definitive diagnosis.

Preparation for the Viral Marker test

The viral marker profile test does not require any specific requirements or restrictions. Here are some instructions you must follow before the test:

  • Consult with your Doctor and discuss your medical history and the medication and supplements you are taking to get accurate reports.
  • You can eat and drink as usual. The test doesn't require specific fasting or any eating restrictions. 
  • Wear comfortable clothing and be relaxed during sample collection.
  • Don't smoke and drink before the test.

The procedure of the Viral Marker test

You can book your test with Redcliffe Labs; search on Google for a viral marker test near me. The phlebotomist will come to your home to collect the sample. During the test, the healthcare provider will collect the blood sample using the needle from the vein. Follow the instructions provided by your lab technician. The blood sample collection procedure includes several steps:

  • The phlebotomist will tie a band on your arm and locate the appropriate vein. 
  • After that, he will clear the arm area with an antiseptic wipe
  • In the next step, the lab technician will insert a needle and draw the blood from the vein.
  • After sample collection, a bandage will be applied to stop the blood flow. 

The blood test will only take 3-5 minutes. You might feel a little tired and uncomfortable during the procedure, but this will be temporary, and you will be expected sometimes. 

What do the Viral Marker test reports indicate?

The viral marker blood test reports provide the status of whether Hepatitis B (HBSAG), Hepatitis C (HCV), and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection is present or absent in your body. Here are some general overviews- 

HBSAG (Hepatitis B Surface Antigen): 

  • Positive Result- A positive result for HBSAG means the presence of the Hepatitis B virus. Your Doctor may recommend further testing to assess the stage and severity of the infection. 
  • Negative Result- A negative result is the absence of Hepatitis B infection. 

HCV (Hepatitis C Virus)

  • Positive Result- A positive result for HCV means the presence of the Hepatitis C virus. Further testing, including viral load measurement, may be needed to determine the extent of the infection.
  • Negative Result- A negative result shows no infection with the hepatitis C virus. 

HIV Antibody, Rapid Card

  • Positive Result- A positive result for HIV antibodies indicates exposure to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. Confirmatory tests, such as Western blot or PCR, may be conducted to confirm the diagnosis.
  • Negative Result- A negative result means the absence of detectable HIV antibodies at the time of testing.

What if the Viral Marker test reports are positive?

If you find a positive viral marker profile test, your doctor may recommend another essential test for further evaluation; for some viruses like Hepatitis B and C, viral load testing may be conducted to determine the amount of virus in your blood. If Hepatitis B or C is detected, your healthcare provider may assess your liver function through additional tests. On the basis of diagnosis, your healthcare provider will recommend the treatment options and create a personalized plan to manage the viral infection. However, your doctor may prescribe antiviral medications to control and suppress the viral infection. Your Doctor will advise you to take a healthy diet, exercise, and avoid substances that can strain the liver.
