What is it?
Detects all HCV genotypes
This PCR flow-through hybridization assay is used to identify HCV genotypes.
The assay features:
Genotyping – Identifies HCV variants 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 1a, 1b subtybes and Q80K mutation
Q80K detection – Helps make treatment decision for HCV type 1a
Internal amplification control (IAC) – A positive control to verify sufficient sample amount, successful DNA extraction and DNA amplification
Hybridization control (HC) – A positive control to verify the success of the hybridization reaction
Universal probe – Detects all HCV variants and rare HCV types that are outside the genotype panel
The fast, cost-effective test is applied to human serum or plasma specimens. Up to 16 samples can be tested simultaneously.
This assay is used with the FT-PRO flow-through hybridization platform.
Each consumable assay kit is capable of 32 reactions.
Who is it for?
This kit is especially valuable to practitioners responsible for the health of populations at risk of hepatitis C (HCV).
It’s useful for designing treatment regimes for patients diagnosed with HCV.
The kit is also useful for researchers involved with HCV.
Why is it different?
This highly sensitive test is currently the most cost-effective solution for genotyping common variants of HCV and identifying the presence of rare genotypes.
It’s fast and can deliver results 3 hours after extraction. Up to 16 samples can be tested simultaneously.
The test features sample quality control and is easy to apply.
Complete – Genotypes 6 common HCV variants, 1a, 1b subtypes, and Q80K, and detects rare types through universal probe
Fast – Delivers results in approximately 3.5 hours
Easy – Requires almost no training. Results can be accurately interpreted at a glance
Cost effective – Lowest overall cost in market, and handles small batches
Need to know
This is a consumable assay kit, developed, supplied and supported by DiagCor. It requires a compatible instrument and a meticulous MDx workflow.
This array test kit is capable of a total of 32 reactions.
Up to 16 samples can be processed in a test run. The capacity of the test chamber is four cassettes, each of which has four wells.
All 32 reactions can be consumed in two test runs.
- Works with
This state-of-the-art instrument performs fast, accurate DNA hybridization to identify the presence of a target molecule in a flexible sample size. Benefits include high efficiency, accurate results and low cost. The FT-PRO is compatible with GenoFlow array kits.
This instrument captures images of DNA analysis from the DiagCor FT-PRO flow-through system and converts them into data. Images are transferred to a server for storage, analysis and reporting. This is a cost-effective way of managing and archiving large volumes of data from DNA-based testing and screening.
A key component in medium resolution DNA analysis, this flow-through hybridization device considerably speeds specimen throughput.
