Rapid POCT for HBV
Apr 28, 2014

Hi Doc, just wondering if you are aware of any good FDA approved HBV rapid test kits available in Canada for community screening? Or would you know where to find this info? Many thanks

Response from Dr. Taylor

This is an excellent question but I do not know the answer. You might consider checking with the makers of rapid hep C and HIV testing kits. I am not aware of any FDA-approved rapid HBV testing kits.
