The cobas® HEV Test is a real-time PCR test for hepatitis E virus (HEV), for use on the cobas® 6800/8800 Systems.
Broad HEV coverage, ready-to-use
HEV is an important cause of acute hepatitis in humans worldwide, both as epidemic and sporadic disease, and many ongoing studies are trying to understand the prevalence of HEV in blood donors.
Preventing transfusion-transmitted infections, like HEV and other emerging pathogens, is a key focus for Roche in their work to keep the blood supply safe.
cobas® HEV was designed to run on the cobas® 6800 and 8800 Systems, simultaneously with other assays if desired. It can help manage the hepatitis E virus in plasma pools and identify HEV-contaminated units while increasing processing efficiency. Parallel processing enables the cobas® 6800 System and cobas® 8800 System to perform up to any 3 tests in the same run with no pre-sorting required, while a dedicated priority lane enables fast and easy handling of high-priority.
