Hello All,I am looking for some document/s with consolidated information about POC device/s for HCV detection and genotyping with emphasis to India but not limited to India. Does anyone have any such information?Best RegardsAmit
Hi AmitDo a Pubmed search for the author "Grebely J".This will provide recent HCV results generated at the POC care in Australia via two or three different studies.You may have to scroll through pages to find relevant publications.RegardsSteve
Dear AmitAdditional to Steve comments. Please find attach some material for references. Additional the WHO list of pre qualified product lists where you may find some information on HCV.Best regards
Dear Steven and Alaine,Thank you very much for your reply. I will go through the papers/documents suggested by both of you.Thanks a ton againBest RegardsAmit
Hi again AmitAre you looking into the the need for a rapid HCV POC test or a molecular HPV POC test, or both.A bit more detail may help and allow others to comment regarding their own experience with regard to either.
Dear Amit,For India specifically, in principle, the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) should have a list of approved HCV tests (both point-of-care and laboratory-based), have you checked? I think their list is not updated but I think it's worthwhile contacting them and inquire. http://www.cdsco.nic.in/forms/Default.aspxI think FIND was also trying to do a mapping on HCV diagnostics in India, mainly on rapid diagnostic tests, so worth checking with them as well.All the best,Emmanuel
