Differents labs result

Oct 26, 2003

Hi! Three months ago by mistake my labs were sent to the wrong laboratoy (Quest). The results in those last labs were as follow..Vload >100000 and Cd4 =358 . My last test were sent to (Labscorp)and the count was Vload =30000 and Cd4 = 458. Could this count differnce be because changing to another laboratory?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It is possible that these could be your samples run at two labs with different methods.

labs at 3 months vs 6 months
CD4 and VL
