IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Serology, Virus, Hepatitis B, Surface Antigen

Definition : Serology reagents intended to detect antigens to the outer coat (i.e., surface) of hepatitis B viruses. These antigens usually appear in serum before any clinical sign of hepatitis and persist throughout the clinical course of the disease. Hepatitis B viruses are DNA viruses of the genus Hepadnavirus, family Hepadnaviridae. These viruses may cause hepatitis, a disease characterized by jaundice and the increase of some enzymes in serum (e.g., aspartate aminotransferase); these viruses may be transmitted percutaneously (e.g., via body piercing, tattooing), parenterally, from mother to child at birth, or by intimate (e.g., sexual) contact.
