DeepChek®-HCV Software (CE-IVD)

S-12-023 (CL)


DeepChek®-HCV Software (CE-IVD) is a flexible and customizable downstream analysis software able to handle sequencing data and intended to be used for performing Viral Hepatitis C (HCV) genomic data analyses and clinical interpretations.

Compatible with Electrophoresis Capillary and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) platforms (like MiSeq, MiniSeq, iSeq-100, 454-Junior, 454-FLX…), DeepChek®-HCV stores, organizes sequencing data in a dedicated database format and performs bio-informatics analyses and clinical interpretations of 5’UTR, CORE, NS3, NS5A or NS5B sequencing data. It is able to generate reports to be used either for research or for routine use.

  • Supported formats: AB1, FASTA and PLAIN-TEXT for Sanger, FASTA/FASTQ (including paired sequencing), BAM/SAM for NGS covering Targeted Genes or also compatible with Whole Genome data.
  • Available analyses: subtyping/high-resolution subtyping, amino-acid mutations/nucleotide changes determination and validation, NGS coverage validation
  • Available interpretations: drug resistance assessment (for NS3, NS5A and NS5B inhibitors) from several up-to-date guidelines (including but not restricted to geno2pheno…)
  • Included services: updates/upgrades (quarterly releases), support, web-training, historical sequencing data import
  • On-demand services: local training, integration with third-party instruments or systems, customization…

The DeepChek®-HCV software system is a secured web application which can be used through a Cloud access or locally, through pre-configured servers. It is made available with regular updates (new clinical databases, guidelines…) and quarterly upgrades (new features, modules, applications…) and can be fully integrated within the IT network of each laboratory (integration with the sequencing platform, with the Laboratory Information System – LIS, with the Hospital Information System – HIS…).

The DeepChek®-HCV software application is CE-IVD (LU/CA01/IVD/69).
