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