FirstVue(TM) HBSAG Test Found to Have Higher Sensitivity and Specificity than Other Rapid HBSAG Tests and FirstVue(TM) '...and was the preferred

Those tests were then compared in a comprehensive evaluation of test performance using plasma and blood specimens. The study indicated that the FirstVue(TM) HBSAG test had the highest sensitivity (95.4%) and the highest specificity (99.7%) among all the tests evaluated. In addition, the evaluation indicated that the FirstVue(TM) HBSAG test detected HBSAG antibodies approximately three days sooner than available laboratory-based enzyme immunoassays. Early detection of seroconversion is an important measure of the sensitivity of a test and means that Hepatitis B infection can now be identified even with relatively recent exposure.
