Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Genotype with Reflex to HCV High-Resolution Genotype by Sequencing
Reflex genotyping panel for prognosis and treatment selection when a higher level of subtype resolution is required. Do not order prior to molecular confirmation of positive HCV screen.
Polymerase Chain Reaction/Sequencing
Lavender (EDTA), pink (K2EDTA), plasma preparation tube or serum separator tube.
Separate serum or plasma from cells within 6 hours. Transfer 2 mL serum or plasma to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 1 mL)
On cells: Ambient: 6 hours; After separation from cells: Refrigerated: 72 hours; Frozen: 4 Months.
Refer to report.
Laboratory Developed Test (LDT)
This test may be unsuccessful if HCV RNA viral load is less than log 5.0 or 100,000 IU/mL. If initial result is "1a or 1b," or a mixed genotype containing Type 1, or Type 6, then Hepatitis C High Resolution Genotyping will be added. Additional charges apply.
87902; if reflexed, add 87902
