Could you please advise my test result. I am totally confused with my result as below HVB VIRAL DNA QT : 407 BUT MY HVB SURFACE QT WITH REFLEX CONFIRM IS NEG WHAT SHOULD I DO TO ENSURE FOR FUTURE PROTECTION OR ELSE THANKS SO MUCH

Response from Dr. McGovern

I am uncertain as well. It is possible that one test is more sensitive than the other, and your viral load is extremely low. I would just follow up for now to be certain it stays this way.
