Hepatitis C DNA RNA PCR test
Hepatitis C Virus RNA PCR EDTA blood
DNA PCR test is immediate to do the fastest and best detectable shortly after a suspected infection.
Hepatitis C antibodies are normally detectable about 2 months after infection. However, hepatitis C infection can be detected by this test at an earlier stage.
In untreated patients, the determination of viral load is used to determine the start of therapy.
Antiviral therapy should lead to a significant reduction in the viral load. Therapy success also depends on the HCV genotype.
This genetic testing takes 5 to 14 working days.
