labs and their techniques? 6 years 4 weeks ago #22501

Thank you for that.
Looked again at my test - 673.62 fmol/L
May be it is not "l" but "1" as it looks similar..
Never mind , I had 2 bloodbtests before with one if them given readings in units so notbthat relevant. If monitoring labs give results inbthe same format I shal make enquiries. Will keep your conversion table handy :)

What does get reported in fmol/L is HCV CORE ANTIGEN. This is a test like PCR (in that it is looking for and counting how much virus it can see).

Here is a paper: www.ejmm.edu.eg/beta/images/articles/April_2014/67-74.pdf

In the paper it says:

Based on this equation, it was possible to calculate that 3 fmol/L of total HCV core Ag is equivalent to 263 IU/mL HCV RNA

So that would be 1 fmol/L to 90 IU/ml of HCV RNA - call it 100

So your 673 represent a viral load of about 60,000
YMMV
