Brief Answer: More than cut off positive, less is negative Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for posting your query. Each laboratory test has a cut off value which would be marked by the manufactures. It may vary according the various kits marketed by different manufactures. If your test value is above this cut off value then the result of the test is considered positive.If the test value is below this cut of value then the result is negative for this test. This is the interpretation. We need not bother about the exact values, only have to look for whether it is higher or lower than the cut off value. I hope you got the point. If you have any more doubts feel free to ask me. Dr S.Murugan
