HCV Rapid Test Background Information
Hepatitis C is a major cause of liver inflammation, liver disease, and liver cancer in North America. HCV is a single stranded positive sense RNA virus belonging to the family of Flaviviridae. Several 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 and more than 50% of the infected individuals develop severe, life threatening chronic hepatitis with liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinomas. Many people who are infected with the hepatitis C virus do not show the symptoms, thus are not aware of the infection. Serological evidence of HCV infection may be obtained by testing for HCV antigens or antibodies in serum of individuals suspected of hepatitis C infection. Antibodies to HCV can be detected throughout infection period. Therefore, the use of highly sensitive antibody assays is the primary approach in serodiagnosis of HCV infection. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.
HCV Rapid Test Principle
ANTI-HCV InstaTest is based on the principle of double antigen sandwich immunoassay for determination of anti-HCV in serum. Purified recombinant HCV antigens are employed to identify anti-HCV (hepatitis-C antibody) with high sensitivity and specifically. This one step HCV Rapid Test is very sensitive and results are read visually without any instrument.
HCV Rapid Test Result Interpretation
Negative: Only one color band appears on the control (C) region. No apparent band on the test (T) region
Positive: In addition to a pink colored control (C) band, a distinct pink colored band will also appear in the test (T) region. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.
