The elecsys anti-hbe is an immunoassay for the in vitro qualitative detection of total antibodies to hepatitis b e antigen (anti-hbe) in human adult serum or plasma (potassium edta, lithium heparin, sodium citrate, sodium heparin) from individuals with symptoms of hepatitis or at risk for hepatitis b virus (hbv) infection. Assay results, in conjunction with other laboratory results and clinical information may be used as an aid in the diagnosis of hepatitis b virus (hbv) infection in patients with symptoms of hepatitis or who may be at risk for hbv infection. A reactive test is presumptive laboratory evidence of hbv seroconversion. Further hbv serological marker testing is required to define the specific disease state. The precicontrol anti-hbe is used for quality control of the elecsys anti-hbe immunoassay on the cobas e 602 immunoassay analyzer. The performance of precicontrol anti-hbe has not been established with any other anti-hbe assay.
