Thank you for your question. Non-detectable PSA elucidates the limitations of the PSA test. This is usually done to the hundredth decimal place. The effective sensitivity is This is dependent on the assay method. Values from different kits or methods should not be used interchangeably. There are ultrasensitive PSA tests available that can detect even smaller amounts of PSA in the bloodstream.

Sincerely,
