A rapid membrane flow-through immunoassay to detect antibodies to hepatitis C virus was compared with a commercial enzyme immunoassay (EIA) and microparticle enzyme immunoassay (MEIA) using 2,590 serum samples. Sensitivity and specificity of the "rapid assay" in comparison to the EIA/MEIA were 99.3 and 99.0%; the correlation coefficient being 0.91. This assay is suitable where infrastructure and laboratory expertise are limited.
