The Geenius HCV Supplemental Assay Difference

At Bio-Rad, the Geenius HCV Supplemental Assay will soon replace time-consuming conventional blot testing to confirm the presence of anti-HCV antibodies in venous whole blood, serum, and plasma samples from blood donors or hospitalized patients.

Conventional blot techniques involve time-consuming steps that require extensive hands-on time. Manuel data transcription can result in errors and oftentimes testing is sent out to other laboratories.


The Geenius HCV Supplemental Assay helps decrease hands-on time, features a flexible, more convenient testing protocol, and is routinely used on hundreds of systems worldwide.​

Contact a Bio-Rad representative today to discover how the Geenius HCV Supplemental Assay, by comparison to conventional blot techniques, can make a difference in your daily HCV confirmation routine.
