VERSANT HCV Genotype 2.0 Products (LiPA)
Designed to identify and correctly detect multiple genotypes and subtypes
VERSANT® HCV Genotype 2.0 Products – a simple and standardized method for HCV genotype and subtype detection. Learn more about how your lab can benefit from VERSANT HCV Genotype 2.0 Products.
Line Probe Assay (LiPA) Automation
Multiple throughput options to fit needs and volume requirements of small to large labs.
Improved Genotype/Subtype Performance
Overall performance data is comparable to NS5b sequencing. Identifies all 6 genotypes and more than 19 different subtypes. It is the only commercially available assay able to detect 6 (c-l). The addition of HCV Core region data to the assay allows more accurate differentiation of subtypes 1a and 1b, and more accurate identification of Genotype 6 (subtypes c-l).
LiPA Scan HCV Interpretation Software
Provides automation of strip interpretation and thus reduces the chance of operator error.
One Step RT-PCR
Easy-to-use for increased laboratory efficiency with a simple, complete, 1-step RT-PCR kit that can be used on commonly available thermocyclers.
AutoBlot 3000H reduces hands-on labor and accelerates test reporting with complete walk-away processing of VERSANT® LiPA strips.
|Assay Performance Data*** |
|Characteristic|| Result after initial testing||Result after repeat testing|
|Amplification (% of samples successfully amplified)||97.80%||99.70%|
|Accuracy (% of samples with correct genotype) ||99.30%|
*** Internal Evaluation Studies: 325 HCV-positive samples (Genotypes 1-6, Viral Loads – 2,173 IU/mL – 8,700,000 IU/mL versus reference method of NS5b Sequencing)
