Description

HCV Genotyping Test

HCV genotyping test, an assay determines the Genotypes 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 and their subtypes in positive cases. HCV genotype 1 is more difficult to treat than Genotypes 2 and 3 and causes more severe liver disease. The HCV genotyping test should not be used for screening of blood or blood products or as a diagnostic test to confirm HCV infection.

Why the HCV Genotyping Test Advised?

There are at least six types of hepatitis C, which are also called strains or genotypes. Treatment for hepatitis C depends on the genotype, so genotype testing to guide treatment is performed in patients who are diagnosed with an HCV infection. Patients with genotype 1 and Type 4 infections may show lower response rates, thus requiring higher dosage of treatment, and may benefit from a longer course of therapy.

HCV Genotyping Test Limitations

This procedure may not be successful when the HCV viral load is <1000 IU/mL in serum or plasma.

Mixed genotype assay results may be reported for the following combinations (genotypes 1 and 2; genotypes 1 and 3; genotypes 1 and 4) when viral concentrations are near equivalence. The assay may not report lower concentration genotypes.

Greater than (>) 99% of samples containing sufficient HCV RNA can be resolved to the genotype level using the primary test method. Failure to generate a genotype under such circumstances is most commonly caused by inter-probe competition, leading to ambiguous results. Such samples are automatically subjected to an HCV genotype-specific PCR assay for resolution.
