HCV genotyping non reflex
HCV subtype
  

This assay, for in vitro use, is intended for the genotyping of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in human serum and plasma. This test allows genotyping of the six major HCV types and their most common subtypes.

  
Serum
  
  
3.0 mL
  
300 uL
Submitting the minimum volume does not allow for repeat testing
  

Only submit samples that contain a HCV viral load >1000 IU/mL in serum or plasma. Spin, separate and freeze within 24 hours of collection. Transfer serum to a LabCorp screw-capped purple frozen plastic transport tube prior to freezing. Specimens drawn into PPT(TM) need to be centrifuged within six hours and frozen. Plasma from a PPT TM can be frozen and shipped in situ.

To avoid delays in turnaround time when requesting multiple tests on frozen samples, submit a separate frozen aliquot for each test requested.
