*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 .
