help with HCV test results

Sep 29, 2007

i had an HCV antibody test done and the result was 0.1, next to that it said s/co was 0.0-0.9 and if it was negative it would be 0.0-0.9 and positive wouild be >0.9. so mine would fall under negative, but i thought that with antibody tests it was just either positive or negative, not with any numbers. i thought if you were exposed you would have antibodies and if you weren't you wouldnt. can you explain these numbers to me please.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It's negative.
