In line with national guidelines, and in response to user feedback, the Department of Infection & Immunity plans to reintroduce reflex hepatitis B (HB) core antibody testing on post-vaccination samples giving a HB surface antibody titre of less than 10mIU/ml.
Similarly, reflex testing for HB surface antigen will also be reintroduced for all HB core antibody-positive samples.
These changes will take effect on 28th September 2015.
