Santa Ana Antibody Testing

The COVID-19 Antibody Test checks for antibodies in a person’s blood that protect against SARS-CoV-2. Use this test to determine if Santa Ana employees have previously recovered from COVID-19 or received a COVID-19 vaccine.

Hepatitis A infections can be spread via water, food, and close contact with individuals who are infected. Although it can be prevented by vaccination, people who are not vaccinated against Hepatitis A and do not have the antibodies to protect against this virus may be at risk for liver infections. If proof of Hepatitis A immunity is required for an employer in Santa Ana, this antibody test can be ordered.

Individuals who do not have antibodies that protect against Hepatitis B may be at risk for serious or even fatal liver infection. This virus can be contracted from bodily fluids, such as blood or semen. The Hepatitis B Antibody Test can determine if a person has immunity against this virus.

Similar to Hepatitis A and B, Hepatitis C infections can also result in complications with the liver. Hepatitis C infection is spread via blood, and therefore is most often a result of using contaminated equipment (such as needles). For people who need proof of Hepatitis C immunity or are unsure of their vaccination status, the Hepatitis C Antibody Test can detect the appropriate antibodies in the blood.

Left untreated, some hepatitis infections can cause liver damage, inflammation, and other serious health complications. The below bundle tests a person’s blood for immunity against all three types of hepatitis viruses.

MMR antibody testing is used to determine if a person has immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella.

More commonly known as Chickenpox, the varicella-zoster virus is a highly contagious virus that can be easily spread via air, skin, saliva, and surfaces. Since infection or vaccination frequently occurs at a young age, individuals may be unsure of their vaccination status. This test can be used to confirm whether a person has antibodies against the varicella virus.

This is a package deal that covers a wide range of antibody testing, including varicella (Chickenpox), measles, mumps, rubella, and hepatitis B.

As our most comprehensive package for antibody testing, this option is a great choice for people in Santa Ana who are looking for proof of immunity or for more information about their vaccination status. The Total Antibody Package includes antibody testing for hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, varicella (Chickenpox), measles, mumps, and rubella.
