Would appreciate it if anyone could tell me what a signal to cut of 0.06 means?  If one is not infected should the s/c be 0.00?

PJ - I don't know the individual test, but I suspect you're misinterpreting it. It's not that you scored .06. It's that the test has a sensitivity down to .06.  All tests only have a certain sensitivity and under that they can't detect anything. That statement is about the sensitivity of the text. But you can still take the finding to the bank. You are undetectable for HCV.
