Note
The limit of quantification for the Hepatitis C Virus by Quantitative PCR assay is 1.2 log IU/mL (15 IU/mL). If the assay DID NOT DETECT the virus, the test result will be reported as "<1.2 log IU/mL (<15 IU/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 Hepatitis C Virus by Quantitative PCR result is greater than or equal to 3.6 log IU/mL, then Hepatitis C Virus High-Resolution Genotype by Sequencing will be added. Additional charges apply.
