Notification of introduction of hepatitis C antigen testing

In response to demand from some of our users, it has now been agreed that the Infection & Immunity laboratory will introduce hepatitis C virus antigen testing on serum (clotted blood sample, rust top tube). Please note that the sensitivity of this assay is lower than that of HCV PCR in EDTA blood, and that a negative result does not rule out the possibility of active hepatitis C infection.

The implementation date for introduction of this new test will be 1st May 2017.

If you wish to discuss the above, please do not hesitate to contact the laboratory.
