HCV 

 Hepatitis c virus genotype testing

ACCURATE TESTING, SIMPLIFIED

ALL KEY VIRUSES IN A SINGLE BLOOD DRAW 

HCV is associated with 24,000 to 30,000 deaths each year. Other factors related to HCV include:

  • 40-60% of Chronic liver disease in the US is associated chronic hepatitis C infection

  • Chronic HCV is the leading cause of adult liver  transplantation (~6000 annually)

  • ​Annual health care costs and lost wages estimated $600 million

  • Up to 75% of patients don’t show symptoms or realize they are infected

  • Abnormal liver tests or liver disease.

  • Work in healthcare or public safety and were exposed to blood through a needle stick or other sharp object injury.

  • Those who are infected with HIV.

Effectively Diagnose and Treat Hepatitis C with HCV testing with a reflex to genotyping 

Multiplexed panel to detect all 6 common HCV genotypes and 1a, 1b subtypes, individually.

  • Each determination occurring in triplicate for 3 times the confidence.

  • Ability to detect co-infections.

  • Built in internal control for added reliability.
