[Use of DNA sequence hybridization with specific oligonucleotide probes to identify hepatitis C virus genotypes].


BACKGROUND Recent development of an assay based on the hybridization of the amplification product obtained by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of the RNA of hepatitis C virus (HCV) with specific probes for each viral genotype ("reverse-hybridization"), has permitted to have a rapid, simple and reproductible technique to identify the different genotypes of… (More)
