Higher value of HbsAg Elisa OD ratio means that HBV is spreading faster. It increased from 4.11 to 14.11 within 2 months . whether does it mean that HBV is spreading more in the blood.
Reference Range :
Negative : = 1.11
Technology used: Solid Phase enzyme immunoassay-ELISA.
that test is only qualitative, it doesn't show actual hbsag quantity but only positive or negative.
my first test was hbsag 300s/n and the lab is so ignorant that they said it was like 300iu/ml but when i tested for quantity i was 4800iu/ml
so test hbsag with abbott hbsag quantity test in iu/ml (the only quantitative unit test)
hbsag is not the virus, its only a part of the virus, it reflects cccdna which is virus template inside liver cells, the virus it-selfis reflected by replication signs that's to say hbvdna pcr
