3. Title; The use of Real Time PCR testing for the detection of HVB, HCV and HIV genome in blood donation, Source and Amount of Financial Assistance; CMB 103-00000-8122221. Rm 12000.00, Dates; 2003, Co-researcher; Mr Tee Kok Kheng (RA), Mr Pon Chee Keong (RA). Research results The main objective is to validate and evaluate the suitability of PCR in detecting HBsAg, HCV and HIV genomes in blood donors. RNA and DNA of 1872 blood samples were abstracted by Qiagen Ultrasen kit, amplified by ATS HIV, HBV and HCV RG Quantitative reagents and detected by Rotorgen. The data indicated that PCR did not enhance sensitivity in HBV, HCV and HIV screening compared to conventional MEIA. The main criticism of the project was the number of blood samples used in the study; the preliminary study suggested the needs of future NAT in blood transfusion services, 2008,
