Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), Quantitative, Real-time PCR (Nongraphical)
- HCV RNA Quantitation, TaqMan®
Determine the number of international units (IU) of hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA per milliliter in serum or plasma in known HCV-positive patients
The quantifiable range of the assay is 15 IU/mL to 100,000,000 IU/mL.
Cobas® AmpliPrep/Cobas® TaqMan® HCV Test v 2.0
Serum or plasma
700 μL (Note: This volume does not allow for repeat testing.)
Centrifuge sample within 24 hours of collection. Transfer serum/plasma to a screw-cap polypropylene transport tube. Ship frozen (preferred). Plasma from a PPT™ can be frozen and shipped in situ. To avoid delays in turnaround time when requesting multiple tests on frozen samples, please submit a separate frozen specimen for each test requested.
Freeze (preferred) or refrigerate. Stable at room temperature for 24 hours or refrigerated for 72 hours. Stable frozen for six weeks.
Causes for Rejection
Incorrect anticoagulant; PPT™ not centrifuged
This procedure does not provide serial monitoring; it is intended for one-time use only. If serial monitoring is required, please order test 550070.
