Change in Hepatitis C Genotyping Assay

Effectively immediately, the Molecular Pathology Laboratory will institute a new Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotyping assay due to manufacturer production issues with the current assay. The new assay detects genotypes 1 through 6, but does not provide subtype information. The assay has been validated internally by the Molecular Pathology Laboratory. Questions may be directed to Aaron Bossler, M.D., Ph.D. at 4-9566.
