The DeepChek® Assay V3 Loop / Tropism V1 (RUO) is intended to be used for determining eligibility for CCR5 antagonist treatment in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1). 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)
