SCREEN TEST EPATITE A – HAV

The HAV IgM Rapid Test Cassette is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of IgM antibody to Hepatitis A Virus (HAV) in serum or plasma. HAV is a positive RNA virus, a unique member of picornavirdae1.Its transmission depends primarily on serial transmission from person to person by the fecal-oral route. Although hepatitis A is not ordinarily a sexually transmitted disease, the infection rate is high among male homosexuals, as result of oral-anal contact2,3.
