Hepatitis B treatment management need not be complicated

Oct 4, 2022 | Webinar

Studies show that Xpert® HBV Viral Load, a real-time PCR test for monitoring of Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), is capable of reducing complexity of testing and delivering accurate results. It allows continuous sample loading, which eliminates the need for batching, and allows emergency testing.1 The test can also detect and quantify HBV DNA comparably well as with reference assay.2
