|Titer result (IU/mL)||Reported results||Results interpretation*|
|"Target not detected" or "Not detected"||Results are reported as "HCV RNA not detected".||Ct value for HCV is above the limit for the assay or no Ct value for HCV is obtained.|
|Less than the Lower Limit of Quantification (LLOQ)||Results are reported as "HCV RNA detected, less than [ LLOQ ] IU/mL HCV RNA".||Calculated IU/mL is below the dynamic range of the assay.|
|Titer is within the linear range of the test||
Results are reported as "[ number ]|
IU/mL, HCV RNA detected".
|Calculated results are quantifiable within the dynamic range of the test (e.g.greater than or equal to the LLOQ and less than or equal to ULOQ, results)|
|Greater than the upper limit of quantification (ULOQ)||Results are reported as "greater than [ ULOQ ] IU/mL HCV RNA".||Calculated results are above the dynamic range of the assay.|
