These lab tests can be purchased without a physician and drawn at a Quest Diagnostics location. A small draw fee of $ 8 will be applied at checkout. There are no other "hidden" fees unless noted on the lab test.
Currently, NY, NJ, and RI state laws prohibit direct-access testing. These lab tests cannot be conducted at lab locations within these states at this time.
Lab Test Category

Includes: Epstein-Barr Virus VCA Antibody (IgM), Epstein-Barr Virus VCA Antibody (IgG), Epstein-Barr Virus Nuclear Antigen (EBNA) Antibody (IgG)

Clinical Significance: Primary infection by EBV causes infectious mononucleosis, usually a self-limiting disease in children and young adults. Infection with EBV can cause lymphoproliferative disorders including tumors. VCA-IgM is typically detectable at clinical presentation, then declines to undetectable levels within a month in young children and within 3 months in other individuals. VCA-IgG is typically detectable at clinical presentation, and persists for life. EBNA IgG typically appears during convalescence (3-4 months after clinical presentation) and remains detectable for life.

EBV-VCA IgG/IgM (viral capsid antigen): A positive IgG means you’ve had or currently have the infection; A positive IgM means the virus has been reactivated.

EBV-EBNA IgG (nuclear antigen): A positive test result is usually associated with past infections.
