The Institute for Immunobiology in Technology (Bio-Manguinhos), Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, completed in 2009 the Brazilian kit NAT HIV / HCV. NAT is a computerized system used in testing for HIV, the AIDS virus, HCV, and hepatitis C.

It will be used in the process of serological screening of blood therapy services across the country and allows the reduction of window period. Another advantage is the detection of viral genetic material in the blood. For the director of Bio-Manguinhos, Akira Homma, "with the kit, the time for detection of HIV, which currently is 21 days, will be ten days. Since the diagnosis of HCV, which is 72 days, decrease to 14, "he says.

The new technology, and genuinely Brazilian, will increase the safety of transfusions, ensuring the quality of blood in Brazil. The forecast for incorporation into the National Health System (SUS) is for 2010. The Health Ministry will ask the Anvisa registration kit in August 2009. Before that, a multicenter study to validate the new test will be done in the states of Santa Catarina, Rio de Janeiro and Pernambuco.
