these are very old tests useless on hbv carriers, checked what machine they used and retest with hbsag siemens or hbsag architect.sensibility of these machines is 0.03iu/ml and 0.05iu/ml and they detect all mutants especially siemens

old hbsag assays have poor sensibility and dont detect hbsag mutants

check also hbvdna pcr with sensibility that can reach 6iu/ml or if not available at least 12iu/ml
