HBsAg, Hepatitis B Surface AntigenCatalog number: HB100
The antibody to HBsAG is used for the detection of this antigen in liver cells, which are infected by hepatitis B virus. In healthy liver and other tissues staining is negative. Hepatitis B Virus is a widely distributed Virus, which is known as the main cause of liver cirrhosis. A long-term consequence of hepatitis B infection could be the development of liver carcinoma. Especially medical personal is affected by hepatitis B (due to inappropriate handling of virus contaminated material!) HBsAg subtypes ad and ay.
