Where can I get quantitative HBsAg test in the US?

Hi, I am surprised that the HBsAg/HBeAg test in the US labs only shows +/- without actual values. I want to know the HBsAg and HBeAg trend during my treatment. Is there any labs I can order quantitative HBsAg/HBeAg tests?

Thanks,

an india lab netwrok is offering testing of samples received by fedex

i am checking italian labs, that might be more reliable, for this service too.

whatever the country you send you need to collect blood sample by a nurse or your dector and send by fedex

the test is very cheap, easy and fast result

by the way the machines with no quatification are extremely obsolete and cannot detect hbsag mutants, so those tests are very very unaccurate, they can come out hbsag negative for those with hbsag mutants giving the illusion to be cured

this is a big lab network in europe, i sent an email and they should confirm if they accept blood samples sent by fedex
according to the website they work with private patients, smaller labs, hospitals and so on, so they should accept also samples sent by single patients

DJEpress posted about a place called Scantibodies that will do it. I am going to hint for this test in USA and nearby locations.
