BACKGROUND Despite considerable evolution in the quality of laboratory-based testing for detection of HCV, the availability of rapid, point-of-care tests may increase diagnoses by increasing opportunities for testing outside of traditional laboratory settings. OBJECTIVES We evaluated the performance of a new, rapid HCV test that can be used with venous blood, finger stick blood, serum, plasma, or oral fluid and compared it to FDA-approved laboratory methods.
