Test Performed at or Referral Lab Lab Sendouts  (ARUP)
Referral Lab number:3006079


Reference Range:Not detected.
The quantitative range of this test is 1.54-8.00 log IU/mL (35.0-100,000,000 IU/mL). The limit of quantification for this assay is 1.54 log IU/mL (35.0 IU/mL). If the assay DETECTED the presence of the virus but was not able to accurately quantify the viral load, the test result will be reported as "Not Quantified, Detected".

An interpretation of "Not Detected" does not rule out the presence of inhibitors or EBV DNA concentration below the level of detection of the assay. Care should be taken in the interpretation of any single viral load determination.

International standardization has improved comparability of assay results across laboratories, but discrepancies still exist due to commutability issues with the standard.
Use:Quantify Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) viral load as an aid in monitoring EBV-related disease.
