Application Note: Clinical Evaluation of the artus HCV QS-RGQ Kit
14 November 2012

A clinical evaluation study of the artus HCV QS-RGQ Kit on the QIAsymphony® RGQ system from QIAGEN was carried out at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust before installing the system in the Department of Virology. The artus HCV QS-RGQ Kit is a ready-to-use molecular detection kit for real-time RT-PCR on Rotor-Gene® Q instruments. The artus HCV QS-RGQ assay was compared with the COBAS® AmpliPrep/COBAS TaqMan® HCV Test (Roche) by retrospective testing of human plasma samples for hepatitis C virus (HCV).
