Bio-Rad Laboratories plans to launch two new hepatitis B tests in the US and in Canada shortly. The blood screening Genetic Systems HBsAg EIA 3.0 and the HBsAg confirmatory assay 3.0 are more sensitive and easier to use than Bio-Rad's existing hepatitis B kits, the Hercules, California company says. They are also the only hepatitis B tests to gain regulatory approval for use on cadaveric samples, or samples taken from organ donors, the firm adds.
