PCR for diagnosis
This HCV Real-TM Quant Dx Real Time PCR Test is used as PCR kit for molecular diagnostics with elecrtophoresis, qPCR or real-time PCR of 96 Tests per screening.
ISO CE marked fro IVD
This molecular diagnostic PCR kit is CE approved and complies with the Directive 98/79/EC for IVD, in vitro PCR Diagnostics. The PCR kit is ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2012, CE marked with the in vitro diagnostic medical divices requirements Annex 2 of list B of the laboratory Directive 98/79/EC and can be used for diagnosis of viruses. The kit inculde all reagents for PCR or RT-PCR of viral DNA or RNA.
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3, NS4, NS genotypes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, are small (55–65 nm in size), enveloped, positive-sense single-stranded RNA viruses. Hepatitis C virus is the cause of hepatitis C and some cancers such as Liver Cancer (Hepatocellular carcinoma abbreviated HCC) and lymphomas in humans. HCV Core antigens or envelope proteins are used for immunization to obtain diagnostic antibodies.
PCR, polymerase chain reaction
TAQ or Pfu or Pfx or other enzymes are used for polycmerase chain reaction and have different specificity. The mores specific the lower the yield.
Thermocyclers can be callibrated for identical ramping curves to obtain a more accurate PCR.
