HCV Test Kits
Atlas Link Technology Co., Ltd supplies one-step anti-HCV rapid test kits and anti-HCV ELISA Kit.

And these hepatitis C kits are widely used as an aid in the diagnosis of Hepatitis-C infection.
Meanings of HCV Testing Result
With these HCV antibody test kits, if positive results are observed, this may mean any of the following:
- the testee has a short-term infection and will get better on their own (15%);
- the testee has a long-term infection, and is at risk for developing cirrhosis or liver cancer later in life;
- the infection has resolved (the person was infected in the past but is no longer infected);
- the test was incorrect (a false positive result).
Hepatitis C is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis C virus. Most infected persons develop chronic, long-term Hepatitis C and are at risk for cirrhosis (scarring of the liver) and liver failure. Hepatitis C accounts for nearly 8,000-10,000 deaths each year, and is regarded as among the most serious disease of the six detectable hepatitis disease types. This means that screening test should be performed with those who are vulnerable to hepatitis-C infection.
