Your test result might have a Cq value associated with it, depending on the type of test you took. You will only have a Cq value if the test you took was in the ‘NAAT’ family. You can see this in the ‘Test method’ field of your result details.
The “Cq” in Cq value stands for “Cycle quantification”. It is a number that indicates when (or in which cycle of processing) the virus was detected in your sample.
Using your Cq number and some control sample data for the test, the test manufacturer can calculate an overall ‘detected’, ‘not detected’ or ‘inconclusive’ result. This logic varies depending on the manufacturer of your test: you can find this in the ‘Test name’ field of your result details.
For information on how this is calculated for the FRANKD test, please refer to this documentation.
