Product Description

If only 14 days have passed since the risk contact, you can do the hepatitis C test through PCR method. This is the first test you can perform. The test searches for the genetic material of the virus. The detection rate of this technique is around 99% and false positives have not occurred yet. If 3 months have passed since the risk contact, you can do the hepatitis C antibody test. This test is recommended when a direct blood-to-blood contact has occurred, either during sex or in other type of activities. The test looks for the answer of our body to the hepatitis C virus (antibodies). The detection rate of this technique is 99.99% and the figure of false positives is 1/3000 tests.

This test is recommended when a direct blood-to-blood contact has taken place, either during sex or by sharing dispensers to take snorting drugs.
