Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) by Quantitative NAAT with Reflex to HCV High-Resolution Genotype by Sequencing
Preferred reflex test to confirm active HCV infection following positive HCV screen. Use when a higher level of subtype resolution is required.
Quantitative Transcription Mediated Amplification/Sequencing
Lavender (EDTA), Pink (K2EDTA), Plasma Preparation Tube (PPT), or Serum Separator Tube (SST).
Separate from cells within 6 hours of collection. Transfer 3 mL serum or plasma to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 1.7 mL)
After separation from cells. Ambient: Unacceptable; Refrigerated: 72 hours; Frozen: 6 weeks
Refer to report.
If Hepatitis C Virus by Quantitative NAAT result is greater than or equal to 100,000 IU/mL, then Hepatitis C Virus High-Resolution Genotype by Sequencing will be added. Additional charges apply.
87522; if reflexed, add 87902
