GBV-C, WNV & Dengue V in Ghanaian donors, women & children :  GBV-C, WNV & Dengue V in Ghanaian donors, women & children C Li, D Candotti, JP Allain National Blood Service & University of Cambridge Testing algorithm:  Testing algorithm Screening with Triplex NAT; probes labeled with: CY5 GBV-C, FAM WNV, HEX Dengue Confirmation with virus specific nested RT-PCR Confirmed positive quantified by single virus QPCR for VL Genotyping by sequencing E2 region and phylogenetic analysis Antibody testing with Panbio kits Quantification of GBV-C RNA load:  Quantification of GBV-C RNA load RNA from 200 l of plasma Reference high + plasma: last + dilution defines arbitrary unit GBV-C reference curve 40Ct = 1 AU/ml Distribution of GBV-C markers in blood donors and pregnant women (Li et al. AIDS 2006, 20:379-386):  Distribution of GBV-C markers in blood donors and pregnant women (Li et al.
