HBV DNA PCR
2-8 C (ice packs) or frozen
Store at 2-8 C up to 7 days, frozen at -20C to -80C up to 6 weeks
Target Not Detected (TND)=report as “HBV DNA not detected”.
<2.00E+01 IU/mL=report as “HBV DNA detected, less than 20 HBV DAN IU/mL, HBV DNA is not quantifiable”.
>2.00E+01 IU/mL to <1.70E+08 IU/mL=report as such, results are within the linear range of the assay.
>1.70E+08 IU/mL =report as “greater than 1.70E+08 IU/mL HBV DNA, HBV DNA is not quantifiable”.
2 mL screw-cap tube
In vitro nucleic acid amplification test for the quantitation of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in human serum or plasma (EDTA)
Intended for use as an aid in the management of patients with chronic HBV infection undergoing antiviral threapy. Used to measure baseline levels and during treatment to aid in assessing response to treatment. Assay performance characteristics have been established for individuals treated with adefovir dipivoxil. Performance for determining the state of HBV infecion has not been established.
