Cadaveric testing
*Assay is not intended for diagnostic use
Method Roche cobas 6800/8800 Systems (Living Donor Samples);
Roche cobas TaqScreen MPX v2.0 (Cadaveric Samples).
Test Information Nucleic Acid tests for the detection of HCV, HIV –1 (including HIV group O), and HBV in plasma specimen.
Additional Test Information When HCV/HIV/HBV NAT is ordered, HCV, HIV and HBV are tested together using a Multiplex assay (MPX) on individual specimens. Therefore, it is not possible to order one assay without the other.
Sample Requirements For Living Donor Samples: Dedicated EDTA or Clot (serum) tube for HCV/HIV/HBV NAT

For Cadaveric Donor Samples: Clot (serum) tube is required.

Requested Volume 6 mL
Minimum Volume or Pediatric volume 3 mL
Sample Information Additional information for acceptable sample types and storage conditions
Shipping Information Samples are acceptable for 3 days (living) or 2 days (cadaveric) at a combination of room temperature (≤ 25°C) and at 2-8°C.

To extend sample acceptability to 5 days for living donors, sample must be centrifuged and refrigerated within 72 hours. See additional information at Sample Acceptability for Nucleic Acid Testing .
