This July, Request A Test, a leading national provider of direct to consumer lab testing is offering a 5% discount on titer testing. Customers can save by using promo code TITER5 when placing an order either online or over the phone. Titer blood testing is a simple way for a person to check their immunity to a variety of diseases.
With many people getting ready to start or go back to school, this time of year is a great time to think about ordering titer testing. Many schools require students to provide proof of immune status to diseases which are easily spread amongst large groups of people. For those who do not have current vaccination records, titer testing is a great way to both show their immune status and see if there are any vaccinations they may still need.
Request A Test offers a variety of titer tests, including the popular MMR (Measles, Mumps & Rubella), Varicella IgG (chickenpox), and Hepatitis B Surface Antibody. Titers are also available for Hepatitis A, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis, and Polio. These tests can be ordered by anyone without having to first schedule a doctor's appointment or get approval from an insurance company.
For easy ordering, customers can go to http://www.requestatest.com or call 1-888-732-2348 where a customer service representative is always available during business hours. With affordable pricing and thousands of lab locations across the country to choose from, it's easy for everyone to get the testing they need from Request A Test.
Titer testing looks for the presence of various antibodies in a person's blood which provide immunity to certain diseases and bacteria. These antibodies may be present because a person has received a vaccination or in some cases, because a person has developed a natural immunity from having a disease and recovering from it. Not all immunizations will last for a person's lifetime and the amount of time immunity lasts will vary from person to person. Taking a titer blood test can help a person to determine if they may need a booster or are still immune.
It has become common practice to vaccinate young children shortly after they are born, and again before they begin going to school. Some concerns have arisen about giving children unnecessary vaccinations. A titer test can help determine if a child has a natural immunity or is still protected by the vaccinations they have already received. This can help a child's parents and doctor determine whether additional vaccines are necessary.
In many cases, proof of immunity will be required before entering colleges or workplaces in fields like the healthcare industry. Travelers may find themselves requiring immunization before going to places where certain infectious diseases are prevalent. In these cases, titer testing can be easier than searching for immunization records from years ago. Even if someone doesn't need to verify their immunity for a specific reason, it is still a good idea to periodically check to make sure the vaccinations they have received are still providing immunity. Diseases like measles, mumps, and rubella are easily spread through the air, and can cause serious health complications. Keeping up-to-date on immune status is a key part of preventative health care.
