hep c lab results

Jul 24, 2011

My lab result came back reactive, the HCV RNA, Qyt bDNA reads <615 IU/mL. Then below it says HCV RNA, Qt bDNA <2.79 can you tell me what these numbers mean and the ranges that the number represent. Thank You!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Although you don't indicate why this test was ordered, both of those numbers represent the same thing. One is the absolute number (615) and the other is the log10 number (2.79). The results appear to indicate that HCV RNA was not detectable in the sample.
