Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) GenoSure® NS3/4A Provides Comprehensive Resistance Data for HCV Protease Inhibitors

  • Analyzes the genetic sequence for the nonstructural proteins NS3 and NS4A of HCV genotypes 1a and 1b
  • Detects mutations in NS3 and NS4A and identifies drug-resistant variants for protease inhibitors grazoprevir, paritaprevir​, simeprevir. glecaprevir and voxilaprevir.
  • Uses a next generation sequencing (NGS) platform to detect minor variants at levels as low as 10% of the total population.
