Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotyping is a tool used to optimize antiviral treatment regimens. The newly developed Versant HCV genotype assay (LiPA) 2.0 uses sequence information from both the 5' untranslated region and the core region, allowing distinction between HCV genotype 1 and subtypes c to l of genotype 6 and between subtypes a and b of genotype 1.(More)

Between 1982 and 1986 a total of 1,101 spedmens were submitted to the laboratory for rabies examination. Slides prepared from brain samples (Stanley, 1987) were subjected to the Direct Fluorescent Antibody Test (DFAT) using anti-nucleocapsid conjugate (Institut Pasteur, Paris) where the presence of fluorescing bodies in conjunction with positive and(More)
The usual method for the confirmation of rabies is to remove the brain from the suspected animal and examine impression smears from the cut surfaces of the hippocampus, the cerebellum and the medulla oblongata. A biological test is also available in which a cerebral homogenate is inoculated intracerebrally into suckling mice. In many laboratories in(More)
