One important issue related to Hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA nucleic acid amplification testing (NAT) is the storage conditions of plasma samples in order to obtain reliable results. Many authors have reported that the storage conditions could affect the RNA stability and, hence, HCV RNA detection. We have studied HCV RNA stability in plasma samples after storage at different temperatures (-70, -20, 5 and 25 degrees C). Samples containing different HCV titres were stored and analysed by… CONTINUE READING
