Hepatitis C Virus HCV Antibody
This test measures the level of hepatitis C antibodies.
When the body is exposed to certain viruses, it produces antibodies in response to the infection. A high level of hepatitis C antibodies is considered a positive result and typically indicates either existing or previous infection with hepatitis C.1
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that all positive antibody tests be followed by an HCV RNA tests, which measures the level of virus in RNA to confirm the screening test and to distinguish between an active and previous infection.1
