Qualitative HCV PCR

I've got the test results of the above titled HCV PCR tests,
Can any one help me know about what does it mean.

in one report it is 15 IU/ml and in other report it is 12 IU/ml

and at what are the levels of HCV, where it can be negative.

Hi and welcome to the forum

Does the test also say either "detected" or "not detected"?

What does the report say exactly?

It seems the tests you are taking have different lower levels of sensitivity. Are you being treated for hep c? What treatment and how many weeks on treatment? What does your doctor say about your result? Do you know your genotype?

Mine says HCV not detected and the test sensitivity is less than 15 IU/mL

Good luck
