No, the HBsAG is often used to screen for and detect HBV infections ONLY; earliest indicator of acute hepatitis B and frequently identifies infected people before symptoms appear; undetectable in the blood during the recovery period; it is the primary way of identifying those with chronic infections.

Hepatitis C Antibody (HCV Ab, anti-HCV) is first test for determining whether you have been infected with hepatitis C. The results will come back as either positive or negative.
