Answer

Hello and thanks for your post.

Current viral load tests report two different values, the first is whether the viral load was detectable or not, the second is the lowest level of quantitative detection. Usually, this means that the lowest quantifiable level is 48 copies per microliter. Some research studies have tests that will measure lower levels.

If your VL is undetectable at less than 48 and undetectable, that's the lowest our current technology will measure.

I hope this helps.
