Interpretive Data
The quantitative range of this assay is 1.3-8.2 log IU/mL (20-170,000,000 IU/mL).
1 IU/mL of HBV DNA is approximately 5.82 copies/mL.

This assay should not be used for blood donor screening, associated re-entry protocols, or for screening Human Cell, Tissues and Cellular Tissue-Based Products (HCT/P).
