Undetectable Viral Load Numbers
Apr 3, 2011
If I have a HIV RNA quantification RT-PCR of 9,190 (Undetected copies/ML). If it is in fact a quantity why does it state "undetectable" copies? What does this mean? Usually it just states the numeral and ("copies"/mL). I would appreciate any information that can be given. Thank You

The only thing I can think of is that what appears in the parentheses ( ) is the "normal value" that would appear for any other blood test, in this case, a normal value would be an undetectable viral load.
