Product description

The HCV Rapid Test Cassette (Serum/Plasma) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of antibody to Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) in serum or plasma. HCV Rapid Test Cassette (Serum/Plasma) is not intended for blood donors and organs testing.

Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) is a small, enveloped, positive-sense, single-stranded RNA virus. HCV is the cause of hepatitis C and some cancers such as liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma, abbreviated HCC) and lymphomas in humans. HCV is now known to be the major cause of parenterally transmitted non-A, non-B hepatitis. Antibody to HCV is found in over 80% of patients with well-documented non-A, non-B hepatitis. HCV is a major cause of liver diseases including liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Approximately 3% of the world population is infected with HCV. Thus, HCV infection is considered a public healthy challenge. HCV is a major blood borne human pathogen. There are
approximately 120-130 million or 3% of the total world population that are HCV infected. The epidemic caused by HCV affects all regions, with major differences between and within countries. The WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region and the European Region have the highest reported prevalence of HCV. Conventional methods fail to isolate the virus in cell culture or visualize it by electron microscope. Cloning the viral genome has made it possible to develop serologic assays that use recombinant antigens. Compared to the first generation HCV EIAs
using single recombinant antigen, multiple antigens using recombinant protein and/or synthetic peptides have been added in new serologic tests to avoid nonspecific crossreactivity
and to increase the sensitivity of the HCV antibody tests. RDTs, including oral tests, have excellent sensitivity and specificity compared to laboratory-based methods for HCV antibody detection across a wide range of settings. The HCV Rapid Test Cassette (Serum/Plasma) is a rapid test to qualitatively detect the presence of antibody to HCV in a serum or plasma specimen. The test utilizes colloid gold conjugate and recombinant HCV proteins to selectively detect antibody to HCV in serum or plasma. The recombinant HCV proteins used in the test kit are
encoded by the genes for both structural (nucleocapsid) and non-structural proteins.
