Test IDReporting NameAvailable SeparatelyAlways Performed
HBCHBc Total Ab, SYesYes
HBABHBs Antibody, SYesYes
HBAGHBs Antigen, SYesYes
HCVDXHCV Ab w/Reflex to HCV PCR, SYesYes

Reflex Tests Lists tests that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial tests.

Test IDReporting NameAvailable SeparatelyAlways Performed
HCVQNHCV RNA Detect/Quant, SYesNo
HBGNTHBs Antigen Confirmation, SNoNo

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

If hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody is reactive, then HCV RNA detection and quantification by real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction will be performed at an additional charge.


If hepatitis B surface antigen is reactive, then confirmation will be performed at an additional charge.
