The test covers a panel of genetic tests, which consist of detecting the presence of genetic material of HBV and HCV viruses. These viruses are one of the most dangerous hepatotropal viruses, as they are one of the main etiology factors of acute and chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and hepatic carcinoma. The test detects the presence of HBV and/ or HCV virus in the tested material.
DIAGNOSTICS OF SYSTEMIC INFECTIONS
Classical diagnostics of microbiology infections are based on the systems of micro-organism cultivation on patient blood or body fluids. Such methods do, however, possess a number of drawbacks, which limit the possibilities of their effective utilization in everyday medical practice. The basic drawbacks of such methods include, among others, a long time needed to obtain results, low sensitivity and specific nature making it difficult to cultivate, like in particular after antibiotic treatment is started with patients and in cases, where the infection is caused by microorganism.
Modern molecular diagnostics offer new solutions to support doctors in the process of taking fast and accurate therapeutic decisions. The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is an extremely successful diagnostic method with a very broad application spectrum in laboratory diagnostics, especially when quick results are needed and there is a high profile of the test, or when the diagnosed microorganisms are difficult to cultivate.
