FDA Approved At Home test for Hep A

Is there an FDA Approved At Home Test for Hep A that can give you the results in a few minutes? If so: What is the name of it? Who manufactures it? Who distributes it?

Hi there!
I really doubt if there is any FDA approved home test for hepatitis A.A complete liver function tests is basic test. After any infection our immune system starts making antibodies resulting in positive antibody tests for that specific virus. Immediately after a viral infection, IgM antibodies are produced and at the end of infection IgG are produced.PCR tests are also available. Consult a doctor before getting yourself investigated.
Take care!
