GeneProof Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) PCR Kit applies PCR technology to detect RNA of HCV virus in patient samples. The kit has CE-IVD certification for in vitro Diagnostic Use.


HCV (Hepatitis C Virus) is a dangerous virus causing hepatitis C in humans. Nowadays, HCV-DNA quantification plays an important role in HCV virus testing. HCV-DNA is used in clinical testing to diagnose activity and amount of HCV virus, which is the basis for HCV treatment. The kit is
designed for 
in vitro diagnostics and provides qualitative and quantitative  detection.

▶ Detection ability

  • Specificity: HCV genotype 1-7, 100%
  • Sensitivity (LOD): reaches up 23.518 IU/ml (1 IU/ml = 4,2 copies/ml)  with probability of 95% (on HCV NIBSC 02/264/01 using manual extraction GeneProof PathogenFree RNA Isolation Kit.

▶ Technology

The PCR kit is designed for the Hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA detection by the one-step RT real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) method.  The detection kit takes advantage of the ”hot start” technology, minimizing non-specific reactions and assuring maximum sensitivity.

▶  Validated Specimen: plasma, serum

 Certification: CE-IVD for in vitro Diagnostic Use
