Anti HCV
Mar 20, 2011

anti HCV result is border line.what does it suggest? while patient index value is 2.61 and cutoff value is 1.000

Response from Dr. McGovern

False positive of ELISA antibody testing can occur. If you are at risk of HCV infection, then I would get a HCV RNA test.

If you are at low risk of HCV infection, then I would get a RIBA test, which is much more specific.

Hep C testing
Risk of getting Hep. C from lab in Hospital?
