|HCV test results
Mar 13, 2011
My wife just got the following results: HCV RNA PCR QN = 740,327 and the HCV RNA PCR QNT = 5.87. (The test used the COBAS (R) AMpliPrep/COBAS (R) TagMan (R) HCV Test Kit). Three questions: 1. Is this a high or low viral load. 2. Does this indicate chronic Hep C? 3. Why isn't the Genotype indicated or is it that I just can't find it.

1. It's on the low side. The average is about 1-3 million copies/mL. 2. It could, but you don't indicate why testing was performed. 3. A genotype test is indicated and the results don't appear in the question you posed.
