Hepatitis C is a liver disease which is transmitted by contact with the blood of an infected person. Hepatitis C show significant genetic variation in population worldwide, due to high rate of viral RNA mutations. HCV has six variants (HCV genotypes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6), and 15 subtypes are recorded which vary in the rate of prevalence around the globe. Different types of devices are used for the diagnosis of hepatitis C, including HCV viral load test, HCV antibody test, HCV genotype test and liver biopsy. Inexpensive, rapid, robust, and sensitive analytical devices are essential for effective, accurate diagnosis and monitoring of disease treatment. In May 2011, Abbott’s RealTime PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test received testing market approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for measuring the viral load of hepatitis C (HCV). In 2010, OraQuick HCV Rapid Antibody Test was approved by the U.S. FDA that became an alternative to enzyme immunoassay testing for HCV
