convert IU/ml to copies/ml

Dec 14, 2008

I was getting lab report with copies/ml but since 2005, it became IU/ml. I need to compare my test result. Could you please let me know what the following result equivelant of copies/ml?

HEB B DNA Quant by PCR. Result: 449 IU/ml (2.65 log IU/ml)

Thank you very much!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

1 IU = 5.6 copies. So in your case, about 2500 copies/mL.
