0055670Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1, Genotype by Sequencing By report
Interpretive Data
Refer to individual components.  
Note
The limit of quantification for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1 by Quantitative PCR assay is 1.3 log copies/mL (20 copies/mL). If the assay DID NOT DETECT the virus, the test result will be reported as "<1.3 log copies/mL (<20 copies/mL)." If the assay DETECTED the presence of the virus but was not able to accurately quantify the number of copies, the test result will be reported as "Not Quantified."

If Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1 by Quantitative PCR result is greater than or equal to 3.0 log copies/mL, then HIV-1 Genotype by Sequencing will be added. Additional charges apply.
