STD Panel LabCorp
Chlamydia/Gonorrhea, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Herpes Type 1 and 2, Hepatitis, Hepatic Function, and Syphilis
Our STD Panel includes a total of 7 tests, listed below:
Chlamydia/Gonorrhea test (Urinalysis) - This urine test is used in the detection of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhea by nucleic acid amplification technology. When having this test completed, the patient should call ahead to make sure the patient service center (PSC) has APTIMA Combo 2 urine collection device.
Hepatitis B Survace Antigen (HBsAg) Screen - Used to screen for, detect and assist in the diagnosis of acute and chronic hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infections. The test detects the protein that is presen ton the surface of the virus. This is the earliest routine indicator of acute hepatitis B and it frequently identifies infected patients prior to symptoms occurring.
Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Antibody - Used to assess the exposure to the hepatitis C virus infection and test blood safety. It can help diagnose HCV infection to then guide therapy and/o rmonitor the treatment of a HCV infection. It detects the presence of antibodies to the virus, indicating exposure to HCV. The test cannot distinguish whether someone has an active or a previous HCV infection.
Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) Type 1 and 2 Specific Antibodies, IgG - Used for detection of IgG antibodies specific to HSV types 1 and/or 2 infection. This test will confirm or rule out infection of the HSV Type 1 and 2 virus.
Hepatic Function Panel - Includes Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT); Albumin, serum; Alkalin phosphatase, serum; Aspartate aminotransferase (AST/SGOT); Bilirubin, direct; Bilirubin, total; and Protein, total, serum. These tests are included in the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) and will provide even more information regarding kidney and liver function.
Hepatitis Panel, Full - This test is an acute hepatitis panel, which includes testing for the Hepatitis A antibody, IgM; hepatitis B core antibody, IgM; hepatitis B surface antigen; and hepatitis C virus antibody.
Syphilis (RPR/Rapid Plasma Reagan with Reflex to Quantitative RPR) - This gold standard blood test looks for antibodies to the syphilis virus. If the RPR is positive, there is another test called Treponemal pallidum test. This will automatically run to confirm the result. Syphilis testing is important because a person can have syphilis without knowing it can pass it along to a partner easily.
