Abstract Hepatitis C virus RNA quantification results obtained in 18 laboratories using real-time PCR methods with 10 negative samples and 22 sample dilutions (viral loads of 0.5 to 500 IU/ml) showed a score of correct results of up to 93.5\%. However, 55.6\% of the laboratories did not follow the recommendations for the interpretation of their results, leading to ambiguous conclusions.
