Reagents, Molecular Assay, Infection, Virus, Hepatitis C
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify hepatitis C virus, an RNA virus of the genus Flavivirus, family Flaviviridae, by detecting specific genetic information of the target virus. Hepatitis C virus may cause hepatitis, a disease characterized by jaundice and the increase of some enzymes in serum (e.g., aspartate aminotransferase); these viruses are transmitted frequently parenterally and possibly by intimate (e.g., sexual) contact.
