When a person is infected with a virus, they produce antibodies, chemical compounds that are released into the blood stream, to fight the virus.

    Frequently asked questions

    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. Needle is inserted into the vein of the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    The most common signs and symptoms of HCV are: Belly pain, dark-coloured urine, fatigue, fever, loss of appetite, weight loss, itchy skin, joint pain, etc.
