The detection of hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA by nucleic acid amplification techniques is the method of choice to differentiate between ongoing and past infection, and can be used to monitor the course of HCV infection. In this study, we evaluated the performance characteristics of a newly developed transcription-mediated amplification (TMA)-based assay, the VERSANT HCV RNA qualitative assay, which was designed to qualitatively detect HCV RNA. Samples tested by the TMA assay included 100 HCV… CONTINUE READING
