Sentosa SQ HCV Genotyping Assay

Sequence and genotype Hepatitis C Virus samples


The Sentosa SQ HCV Genotyping Assay uses next-generation sequencing (NGS)-technology to deliver accurate detection of Hepatitis C Virus genotypes 1-6 and their associated subtypes as well as identification of resistance-associated substitutions (RASs).

Compared with traditional methods for HCV genotyping such as line-probe assays (LiPA), this NGS assay eliminates genotyping errors while simultaneously delivering information about RASs found in the sample
