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.
Compliance Statement B: For laboratory developed tests not using a RUO kit, and for FDA approved, cleared or 510(k) exempt assays with alterations. This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. The U. S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved or cleared this test; however, FDA clearance or approval is not currently required for clinical use. The results are not intended to be used as the sole means for clinical diagnosis or patient management decisions.
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.
