HCV Ab ELISA Kit Background Information:
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is an envelope, single stranded positive sense RNA virus belonging to the family of Flaviviridae. Six major genotypes and series of subtypes of HCV have been identified. Isolated in 1989, HCV is now recognized as the major cause for transfusion associated non-A, non-B hepatitis. The disease is characterized with acute and chronic form although more than 50% of the infected individuals develop severe, life threatening chronic hepatitis with liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinomas. Since the introduction in 1990 of anti-HCV screening of blood donations, the incidence of this infection in transfusion recipients has been significantly reduced. Diagnostic Automation anti-HCV v.4 is based on double antigen sandwich principle ELISA. This novel method for the testing of HCV antibodies allows detection of very early antibodies including IgM, and IgA in addition to the IgG which is the main target for detection of the previous generation assays. In addition, the method minimizes the unspecific reaction showed by the other methods and thus its utilization increases the specificity in detection.

HCV Ab ELISA Test Principle:
This kit is a two-step incubation enzyme immunoassay, which uses microwell strips coated with recombinant HCV antigens expressed in E.coli (recombinant Core and NS3/4/5). Patient serum or plasma sample is added together with biotin-conjugated HCV antigens. During the first incubation step, the specific HCV antibodies, if present, will be captured inside the wells as a double antigen sandwich complex comprising of the coated, and the biotin-conjugated HCV antigens. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.
