The Hepatitis B Titre Level test is a simple blood test used to check if you are protected from the Hepatitis B virus. Titre level refers to the level of antibodies found in your blood and indicates whether you have been exposed to the virus and your body can therefore fight it off.
This blood test is routinely used following a Hepatitis B vaccine to ensure that your body has built up immunity. People at high risk of coming into contact with the Hepatitis Virus can benefit from this test, this includes anyone who:
At Summerfield Healthcare, we offer a full blood testing service including blood tests for Hep B Titre Levels. Our modern and comfortable clinics are perfectly situated for easy access and our flexible appointment times mean you can arrange your appointment for a time that suits your needs. All our tests are carried out by experienced and trained professional medical staff members to give you the best possible care.
To test the titre levels in your blood, a small sample of blood will need to be taken. During your appointment, one of our experienced staff members will use a thin needle and syringe to extract a small amount of blood, usually from a vein on the inside of your arm. This sample is then labelled and sent back to the laboratory for testing.
There is no need to prepare for the test in any way and the blood draw is relatively painless. You may experience some slight discomfort and bruising at the needle site, but this will pass within a few days.
Your whole appointment shouldn’t take longer than 15 minutes and you can resume all normal activity after the blood test.
We send blood test results back to you electronically in a secure PDF. This offers you fast result turnaround time and clear and secure documentation.
If you would prefer to receive your results by post, please let us know and we will send a hard copy to you using Royal Mail first class.
If your results are positive, it means you have enough of the Hepatitis B antigen to protect you from infection from the virus. You are considered immune and don’t need to do anything else.
If your result is negative, it means the level of hep B antigen in your bloodstream is too low to render you immune. You will need to complete a course of Hepatitis B vaccine in order to build up protection against the virus. This is still applicable if you have already had the vaccine.
