HCV RNA Qualitative


The HCV RNA Qualitative test detects hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA in a patient’s blood sample, confirming active infection. It is used to diagnose HCV infection, especially in cases of recent exposure or acute hepatitis. This test helps differentiate between active infection and resolved infection or false-positive antibody results. Early detection allows for timely intervention and reduces the risk of chronic liver disease progression. It is typically performed alongside antibody tests for comprehensive diagnosis.
