For In Vitro Diagnostic Use
Abbott Molecular offers consolidated hepatitis testing of both HCV genotype and viral load on the fully automated Abbott m2000sp/rtplatform. The Abbott Realtime Genotype II assay determines the genotypes of hepatitis C virus in plasma and serum of HCV-infected individuals
The Abbott RealTime HCV Genotype II provides:
The Abbott RealTime HCV Genotype II assay consists of 2 reagent kits:
The accuracy of the Abbott RealTime HCV Genotype II assay was demonstrated by testing 169 HCV genotype 1 (110 of genotype 1a, 58 of subtype 1b, and 1 genotype 1 only), 41 HCV genotype 2, 27 HCV genotype 3, 28 HCV genotype 4, 14 HCV genotype 5, and 12 HCV genotype 6 positive specimens. Nucleotide sequencing was used to determine the reference genotype of each specimen tested.
