182.3 Anti-Hbs (cut off 10.0) "reactive"..what do you mean by that?
Hi! last week I had been tested for Anti-HBs Titer due to a work requirement, I am a nurse, I just can't understand the results. It says 182.3 count, the cut off value is 10.0, "reactive". 4yrs ago I had been screened for Hepa B with a "negative" result. Months after that screening I completed 3 doses of hepa B vaccine (energix b), with 0-1-6 months interval of doses. I haven't had booster dose since then. so does my Anti-hbs reading "reactive" good or bad? does that "reactive" mean I'm immune due to the vaccine or I'm infected? Do I need to do Hepa Screening again? what do I need to do? Im confused, help me please interpret this one. Thank you in advance!

As a registered nurse you should know the difference between antigen and antibody. Anti-HBsAg positive means you have antibody to HBsAg , the purpose of having the vaccine. Your level of antibody is high, so you now have protective immunity.
Please also pay attention to units in your result.
