Test Code CHHPR 
Test HEPATITIS PROFILE, CHRONIC, SERUM (REFLEX HCV RNA VIRAL LOAD) 
Methodology CHHEP: Chemiluminescence Immunoassay

HCVVL: COBAS Ampliprep/COBAS Taqman HCV Test, v2.0, Quantitative Reverse Transcriptase-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) (If indicated) 

Description Useful for differential diagnosis of past (resolved) or chronic hepatitis B and/or C. "Hepatitis B Surface Antigen Confirmation, Serum" may be performed at an additional charge on specimens exhibiting low positivity for Hepatitis B Surface Antigen.
