It is necessary to do a blood test known as an HCV antibody test to detect whether or not someone has been infected with the hepatitis C virus. The anti-HCV test, also known as the HCV antibody test, tests a person's blood for antibodies to the hepatitis C virus, which can be positive or negative depending on the results of the HCV antibody test. When infected with a virus, antibodies are released into the bloodstream, allowing the infection to infect other people.

Why done? 

  • It is common for this virus to infect the liver and become chronic over time, resulting in liver damage and liver failure in specific individuals. It is used to detect antibodies that have been produced against the Hepatitis C virus (HCV).

The HCV RNA tests should have an LLOQ of about 25 IU/mL or even  lower when you would need to assess  the treatment response with DAAs. The LLOQ is  the lowest HCV RNA level that is within linear and an analytically acceptable range of the assay.  While, the LLOD = the lowest level of the  HCV RNA that could be detected ≥95% of the time.
