Roche Diagnostics Corporation Key Developments

DaVita Labs Uses Roche Technology to Launch Molecular Diagnostics Testing

DaVita Kidney Care announced that DaVita Labs has implemented molecular diagnostic testing using technology from Roche Diagnostics. This molecular diagnostic testing will allow DaVita Labs to be the first dialysis laboratory in the country to test for Hepatitis C (HCV) virus levels in the blood (viral load) using the COBAS Ampliprep/COBAS TaqMan HCV v.2 test from Roche. This DNA-based technology will enable DaVita Kidney Care to help nephrologists manage patients with chronic HCV in conjunction with clinical and laboratory markers of infection. The test can be used to predict the probability of sustained virologic response (SVR) early during a course of antiviral therapy, and to assess a patient's response to antiviral treatment. DaVita Labs will also evaluate viral load testing for Hepatitis B, HIV and cytomegalovirus -- all of which are FDA-approved tests - on the Roche.
