Hcv Rna Quantitation

Quantitation of HCV RNA by bDNA technology is possible with the commercial VERSANT HCV RNA 3.0 assay. The performance characteristics of this test were established in our laboratory during the so-called ''beta trials'' before licensing and are given in Table 1.[4] Our findings were essentially confirmed by other studies,[11,12] and showed that the assay, from an analytical point of view, can be used as a routine tool for HCV RNA quantitation in clinical laboratory settings.
