GenoQuant HCV real time PCR kit

Test quantifies the hepatitis C virus (HCV) DNA in human plasma or serum from HCV-infected individuals, producing results in just 1.5 hours.

What is it?

Accurately quantify HCV viral load 
 
This in vitro polymerase reverse transcription chain reaction (PCR) assay is applied to quantify the hepatitis C virus (HCV) DNA in human plasma or serum from HCV-infected individuals.
 
The assay enables accurate quantification of genotypes 1 to 6.
 
This approach is fast and cost-effective, and highly sensitive. 
 
The kit is compatible with various real time PCR instruments.
 
Each kit can perform 48 tests.

Who is it for?

This kit is especially valuable to practitioners concerned with identifying and treating hepatitis C patients.
 
The GenoQuant HCV real time PCR kit is also useful to hepatitis researchers.

Why is it different?

This highly sensitive, easy-to-use kit quantifies the hepatitis C virus (HCV) in human plasma or serum.
 
The kit is accurate and reliable, and applies internal controls to verify results.
 
This approach delivers results 1.5 hours after extraction.

Advantages

Complete – Quantifies all HCV genotypes 1 to 6
Accurate – Highly sensitive quantification of HCV
Practical – Compatible with various real time PCR instruments
Fast – Delivers results approximately 1.5 hours after extraction
Easy – Ready-to-use reagent
Cost effective – Highly price-competitive
