GenoFlow HCV array test kit

Kit identifies six HCV genotypes (1-6), 1a, 1b subtypes and Q80K from human serum specimens. It also detects the presence of rare genotypes through universal probe. 

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.

Advantages

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

    FT-PRO flow-through hybridization system

    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. 

    Capture-PRO image capture system

    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.

  • Workflow
    A key component in medium resolution DNA analysis, this flow-through hybridization device considerably speeds specimen throughput.
