The VERSANT HCV RNA 3.0 Assay (bDNA) helps laboratories reduce their biggest expense: labor.
The VERSANT HCV RNA 3.0 Assay (bDNA) accurately quantitates throughout its broad dynamic range.
- Broad dynamic range (615 to 7,690,000 IU/mL) dramatically reduces repeat testing Saves time, costs, and provides the ability to detect a clinically significant 2-log drop in viral load
Ease of Use
- Familiar ELISA-like format - Easy to learn and train
Low Risk of Sample Contamination
- No viral extraction Eliminates tedious extraction steps (required with PCR assays) that increase risk of cross-contamination
