HEPATITIS C VIRAL RNA HCV RNA QUANTITATIVE REAL TIME PCR Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the HEPATITIS C VIRAL RNA HCV RNA QUANTITATIVE REAL TIME PCR Test to help diagnose and monitor Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections. This test measures the amount of HCV RNA in a person’s blood and is essential for assessing the effectiveness of antiviral treatment.

Test Details

The HCV RNA quantitative real-time PCR test is a diagnostic test that uses a technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to amplify and detect the HCV RNA in a blood sample. The test accurately quantifies the viral RNA in the blood and provides results in international units per milliliter (IU/mL) or copies per milliliter (cp/mL) of HCV RNA present.

Test Components and Price

The cost of the HEPATITIS C VIRAL RNA HCV RNA QUANTITATIVE REAL TIME PCR Test is 1050.0 AED. The test requires a sample of 3 mL (2 mL min.) serum from 2 SST’s or 3 mL (2 mL min.) plasma from 2 Lavender Top (EDTA) tubes. It is important to separate the serum/plasma within 2 hours of collection and ship it refrigerated or frozen.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections may not always cause symptoms, but common symptoms include fatigue, jaundice, abdominal pain, and loss of appetite. The HCV RNA quantitative real-time PCR test is used to confirm the presence of the virus in the blood and measure its viral load. It is recommended to consult with a gastroenterologist for diagnosis and further treatment.

Report Delivery

The sample for the HEPATITIS C VIRAL RNA HCV RNA QUANTITATIVE REAL TIME PCR Test is collected on Tuesdays or Fridays by 11 am, and the report is delivered on Thursdays or Mondays.

Pre Test Information

It is recommended to fast for 12 hours before taking the HCV RNA quantitative real-time PCR test.

Test Department and Doctor

The HEPATITIS C VIRAL RNA HCV RNA QUANTITATIVE REAL TIME PCR Test is conducted in our Molecular Diagnostics department and is supervised by a Gastroenterologist.

Conclusion

The HCV RNA quantitative real-time PCR test is a vital tool for monitoring the viral load of Hepatitis C virus (HCV) and assessing the effectiveness of antiviral treatment. It accurately quantifies the amount of HCV RNA in a person’s blood and helps guide treatment decisions. It is important to note that this test measures the amount of viral RNA, not the severity of liver disease or the effectiveness of treatment. Additional tests, such as liver function tests and liver biopsy, may be used to provide a comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s condition.

Test Details

The HCV RNA quantitative real-time PCR test is a diagnostic test used to measure the amount of Hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA in a person’s blood. This test is important for monitoring the viral load of HCV and assessing the effectiveness of antiviral treatment.

During the test, a blood sample is collected from the patient and processed in a laboratory. The test uses a technique called polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to amplify and detect the HCV RNA in the sample. The PCR process allows for the accurate quantification of viral RNA in the blood.

The results of the HCV RNA quantitative real-time PCR test are reported as the number of international units per milliliter (IU/mL) or copies per milliliter (cp/mL) of HCV RNA present in the blood. The test can provide information on the level of viral replication and help guide treatment decisions.

It is important to note that this test measures the amount of viral RNA, not the severity of liver disease or the effectiveness of treatment. Other tests, such as liver function tests and liver biopsy, may be used in conjunction with the HCV RNA quantitative real-time PCR test to provide a comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s condition.
