VERSANT® HCV Genotype 2.0 Products (LiPA) provide improved accuracy in identification of HCV genotype and subtype data for optimal patient therapy. Improve your efficiency with fully automated strip processing and an integrated system from amplification to interpretation.

  • Improved efficiency—scalable strip processing automation: up to 48 tests with the Auto-LiPA 48; up to 10 tests with the Tendigo
  • Ease of use—fully automated strip processing requiring minimal hands-on time
  • Convenient Line Probe Assay (LiPA)* format—standardized, globally recognized LiPA format
  • Enhanced confidence in results—updated interpretation chart includes decreased number of undetermined subtypes and rare genotype/subtype patterns

Features & Benefits

VERSANT® HCV Genotype 2.0 Products – a simple and standardized method for HCV genotype and subtype detection. Learn more about how your lab can benefit from VERSANT HCV Genotype 2.0 Products.

Line Probe Assay (LiPA) Automation

Multiple throughput options to fit needs and volume requirements of small to large labs.

Improved Genotype/Subtype Performance

Overall performance data is comparable to NS5b sequencing. Identifies all 6 genotypes and more than 19 different subtypes. It is the only commercially available assay able to detect 6 (c-l). The addition of HCV Core region data to the assay allows more accurate differentiation of subtypes 1a and 1b, and more accurate identification of Genotype 6 (subtypes c-l).

LiPA Scan HCV Interpretation Software

Provides automation of strip interpretation and thus reduces the chance of operator error.

One Step RT-PCR

Easy-to-use for increased laboratory efficiency with a simple, complete, 1-step RT-PCR kit that can be used on commonly available thermocyclers.

Reduces hands-on labor and accelerates test reporting with complete walk-away processing of VERSANT® LiPA strips.
