Brecksville, OH (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
This March, Request A Test, a leading national provider of direct to consumer lab testing, is offering 5% off all titer testing. To take advantage of this promotion, customers just need to use promo code TITER5 when placing their order. With the new school year starting soon, many students will be required to provide proof of vaccination history or immune status. Many new graduates will also find themselves in need of proof of immunity to start in careers in the medical field or other industries where the risk of transmitting communicable diseases is high. Getting a titer blood test is a quick, easy way to verify a person's immune status to a particular type of virus or infection. Some of the most popular titers include the MMR (measles, mumps & rubella), TDAP (tetanus, diphtheria & pertussis), Varicella (Chichenpox), Hepatitis B and Hepatitis A. Through Request A Test, anyone can order these tests and others without having to first schedule a doctor's appointment or get approval from an insurance provider. Customers can choose from 1000's of lab locations across the United States and most tests see results in just a few business days. Request A Test makes it easy to get the testing you need whenever you need it.
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. Additional boosters may be periodically required to maintain immunity. Unfortunately vaccinations may last longer in some people than others and there is no way to know without a blood test if a person is currently immune. Many schools require proof of immune status for students due to the high risk of spreading certain diseases amongst the student body. Teachers or caregivers are also often required to be vaccinated for the same reason. Employees in industries such as healthcare, childcare, or correctional institutions are often required to provide periodic proof of immunity to diseases which are easily spread among large groups of people. Companies will sometimes order these tests for their employees or require the employees to provide the test results themselves as a condition of employment. People travelling to and from some countries will also be required to provide immune status to certain diseases which may be prevalent in the area. In many cases titer testing can be easier than searching for immunization records from years ago or undergoing new vaccinations. Even if someone doesn't need to check 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.
