The DeepChek®-HIV INT Genotyping Assay V3 (K-17-H2-INT) is intended to be used for HIV-1 genotyping and provides antiretroviral susceptibility information for integrase inhibitors (II). It combines target-specific PCR reagents with in vitro diagnostic software both compatible with either Sanger or Next Generation Sequencing platforms.
DNA Sequencing • Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR)
The emergence of integrase drug resistance mutations has been observed in vitro and in patients experiencing virologic failure on raltegravir in clinical trials. Twenty three percent of patients receiving raltegravir in a clinical trial experienced virologic failure at 48 weeks and genotypic analysis detected raltegravir associated resistance mutations in 68% of virologic failures. This assay amplifies and sequences the HIV-1 integrase gene and reports mutations at positions associated with integrase inhibitor drug resistance.
