A fully automated chemiluminescent microparticle immunoassay (Architect HBsAg QT) was used for the detection and quantitation of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg). The assay is capable of processing up to 800 HBsAg tests per hour. The concentration of HBsAg is determined by utilizing a previously generated Architect HBsAg calibration curve. Architect HBsAg QT sensitivity was found to be around 0.2ng/ml which is equivalent or superior to other known and commercially available enzyme… CONTINUE READING
