Change to Hepatitis B Surface Antibody

Effective immediately, the UHS laboratory will be migrating to a reformulated kit for in-house Hepatitis B Surface Antibody testing, in response to a change by the manufacturer. A comparison between the old and new kit(s) is as follows:


Old Kit

Reference Range: Negative

Patient results: Negative/Positive/Borderline

Cutoff (Indeterminate) 9-11 mIU/mL

New Kit

Reference Range: Non-Reactive

Patient results: Non-Reactive/Reactive/Indeterminate

Cutoff (Indeterminate) 8-12 mIU/mL

In addition, any result reported as Indeterminate will contain a statement from the manufacturer clarifying the Indeterminate result.

For questions, please contact the WMH Chemistry Supervisor, Angela K. Armato, MT, MBA (607-763-5780)

Thank you.
