An HCV genotyping test is a blood test that checks the type of hepatitis C strain present in a person. Hepatitis C is a liver infection that causes swelling and dysfunction of the liver. This condition is caused by the hepatitis C RNA virus. The RNA viruses are of different genotypes. This disease can be spread from one person to another through blood contamination. The Hep C genotype test is a part of hepatitis C testing that is crucial for hepatitis C treatment.
An HCV genotype test is used to find out the type of hepatitis C virus present in a person. Hepatitis C is a viral infection that damages the liver and affects its ability to perform body functions. The virus enters the liver cells and causes problems. There are six RNA genotypes found for hepatitis C with several subtypes. Three of them are the most common, namely, genotype 1, genotype 2 and genotype 3.
The hep C test is used to determine the right treatment plan for the patient. Early diagnosis of this infection can help to stop the further progression of liver cancer, serious liver disease, and cirrhosis. The treatment plan depends on the type and stage of hepatitis C. This test is usually prescribed by the doctor after two other hepatitis C test results are positive, namely, the HCV antibody test and the HCV viral load test. The HCV viral load test is also called the HCV RNA quantitative genotype as it measures the quantity of virus present in the blood. The HCV Lipa genotype assay is used to detect major genotypes of hepatitis C. In this process, biotinylated DNA PCR products are hybridised.
