The Institute of Technology in Immunobiology (Biomanguinhos / Fiocruz) has just obtained registration kit Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) for HIV and hepatitis C. According to the manager of the Development Program of Reactive Biomanguinhos, Antonio Gomes Ferreira, NAT, which will be produced by the unit with some supplies from the Molecular Biology Institute of Paraná (IBMP) and other partners to complement the serological tests that are offered in blood centers in the country, increasing the safety of blood transfusion. The new product detects the AIDS virus and hepatitis C virus in blood bags and costs three to four times less than similar products sold by multinational private companies.

The project is a scientific and technical partnership with IBMP and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) and involved at least 20 sectors. Currently, a multicenter study is in final stage with more than 120 000 samples tested in four blood centers in the country that already have national Test NAT deployed. With registration, the network will expand to up to 15 blood centers during 2011 to conduct the test allowing the 3.5 million blood donations Brazilian public's blood, said Ferreira.

The process for reaching the milestone is quite complex, since it provides not only the production of the kit, as well as visits to the blood center, assessment of its condition to receive the necessary equipment, orientations for possible adjustments of the location, installation and validation of the machines, training of professionals, routine monitoring of initials. And does not end there. After that, we follow from afar, but with a well established SAC to solve any problem, whether in equipment or supplies, up to 24 hours. We must act efficiently to keep everything running smoothly, he concluded.
