What is the Epstein-Barr Virus?

The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a common human virus belonging to the herpesvirus family. It is best known for causing infectious mononucleosis, also known as glandular fever. Most people get infected with EBV at some point in their lives, and the virus remains latent in the body afterward.

Common Symptoms of EBV Infection

Symptoms of a primary EBV infection vary but often include fever, swollen lymph nodes, fatigue, sore throat, and an enlarged spleen. Symptoms can range in severity and duration but are usually most pronounced in teenagers and young adults.

About the Epstein Barr (EBV) Test

GetTested's Epstein Barr test is a fast and efficient way to detect IgG antibodies against EBV's Viral Capsid Antigen (VCA) and EB Nuclear Antigen (EBNA) via capillary blood. The test is easy to use and provides results within 15 minutes. This test is particularly useful for identifying previous exposures to EBV and can help distinguish EBV-related conditions from other similar illnesses caused by different pathogens such as cytomegalovirus or Toxoplasma gondii. The test provides a quick indication of whether a person has a current or past infection.

The tests are CE approved for professional use*.
