[Histonet] HPV results - probe vs. antibody

From:"Kapoor, Sue"

I have a formalin fixed, paraffin embedded block I sent out for HPV testing.
Can anyone explain these results to me:
HPV monoclonal antibody - positive
HPV polyclonal antibody - positive
HPV low risk probe - negative
HPV high risk probe - negative

The HPV monoclonal antibody used is Dako's, clone K1H8, I don't know what
the poly Ab. is.
I'm wondering how the Ab.'s can be positive but the more sensitive probes
are negative??????
