Test Details

Synonyms

  • NGI HCV QuantaSURE®
  • QuantaSURE® HCV

Limitations

The NGI QuantaSure® assay has a quantitative range of 2 IU/mL to 2,000,000 IU/mL or 5−5,000,000 copies/mL.

Methodology

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification and detection

Specimen Requirements

Specimen

Serum or plasma, frozen

Volume

3.5 mL

Container

Red-top tube, gel-barrier tube, plasma preparation tube (PPT™), yellow-top (ACD) tube, or lavender-top (EDTA) tube

Collection

Collect whole blood in red-top tube, gel-barrier tube, PPT™, yellow-top (ACD) tube, or lavender-top (EDTA) tube. Do not use green-top (heparin) tubes. Centrifuge specimen within six hours of collection. Remove serum or plasma, transfer specimen to a plastic screw-cap transport tube (not “pop-top” or “snap-cap”), and freeze. Ship frozen on dry ice. Note: If PPT™ is used, do not transfer plasma; centrifuge specimen in a swinging bucket rotor centrifuge and ship frozen on dry ice. To avoid delays in turnaround time when requesting multiple tests on frozen samples, please submit separate frozen specimens for each test requested.

Storage Instructions

Freeze

Causes for Rejection

Hemolysis; green-top (heparin) tube; specimen not frozen; PPT™ not centrifuged; specimen received in “pop-top” or “snap-cap” tube

Clinical Information

Special Instructions

Submit a separate test request form for each specimen.
