HBV 1000 copies/ml genotype reference panel
HBV-DNA multiple genotype reference panels
The same cross calibrated HBV, HCV and HIV genotype standards that over the years were tested in several analytical sensitivity studies were also used for preparation of 100 copies/mL and 1000 copies/mL multiple (20-25 member) genotype reference panels. So far the HIV and HBV multiple genotype reference panels have been used for evaluation studies of the quantitative NAT methods of one manufacturer. Currently the HIV subtype reference panel is expanded with HIV-2 subtypes and an HIV group N sample.
