The invention relates to the field of biotechnology, immunology and vaccinology and can be used for fabrication of panels of sera containing antibodies to viruses of the most socially dangerous infections.

Form the collection of plasma samples of infected individuals from different regions of Russia. Plasma samples in Russia necessarily sceneroot for the presence of HBsAg and anti-HIV 1+2, anti-HCV and anti-Tr antibodies. Approximately 2% of all samples sent for re-confirmed in a reference laboratory. However, the effectiveness of the validation of the results depends not only on the quality of the test systems, but also on the availability in the control laboratories standard drugs during infectious markers Recommendations agreed by the Group for the serological diagnosis of hepatitis C.

To prepare anti-HCV genotype reference panel. All panel components must be inactivated and should be prepared from plasma samples (sera) genotypes 1, 2 and 3. In the subsequent accumulation of the material in this panel you can add reactive samples genotypes 4, 5 and the panel should include samples of extremely diluted in recalcification plasma, negative for HBsAg, anti-HCV and anti-HIV 1+2 and negative in Poland assays for HCV RNA, HIV RNA and HBV DNA [meeting of the WHO ECBS 1996, 2000].

When the solution to the problem of assessing the quality of diagnosis of viral infe the Nations in Russia should create a Collection of plasma from patients with diagnosed mainly from regional infectious clinics. And on the basis of this material to form a national panel of sera. This conclusion has and statistical justification, because the diagnosis requires a considerable investment of time and involvement of qualified personnel.

In accordance with the recommendations of the ECBS national panel should include plasma samples with genotypes and subtypes characteristic of Russia.

Use in everyday work products with different HCV subtypes will allow you to extend the range of diagnosed markers and use these materials for quality control analysis of blood for the detection of hepatitis C.

External quality control of laboratory research is an integral part of ensuring the value and reliability of laboratory diagnostics. Serological diagnosis of anti-HCV is the main instrument of control and prevention of hepatitis C. Detection of antibodies to each of the antigens of the hepatitis C virus has a self diagnostic value.

For this purpose, the most widely used screening enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). To perform the ELISA use test systems, representing a multi-component sets of antigens of the virus. On the effectiveness of the ELISA affects not only the quality of these ant the genes but professional training of laboratory staff providing the test [4]. To provide an objective external assessment of the quality of laboratory research is extremely essential specially prepared and certified reference materials.

The famous master panel HBsAg. Described by MP. For the formation of the panel, it is necessary to have a representative sample of plasma or serum prepared from samples of different regions of Russia, and certified by genotype HBV and HBsAg serotype [2].

Famous national panel of sera (NTC) anti-HCV [3, prototype]. The active components of the set are antibodies to HCV, reacts with portions of the proteins of different HCV subtypes encoded by structural (core) and nonstructural (NS3, NS4, NS5) region of the HCV genome, samples diluted in stable defibrination plasma.

Set includes 20 samples of human serum containing and not containing antibody subtypes 1a, 1b, 2 and 3A of the hepatitis C virus, which can be used for quality control as a screening and confirmatory ELISA test systems. The active components of the set are antibodies to HCV, reacts with portions of the proteins of different HCV subtypes encoded by structural (core) and nonstructural (NS3, NS4, NS5) region of the HCV genome, samples diluted in stable is Noah defibrination plasma.

The main disadvantage of the control panel is a small sample Swatch. 16 positive samples, the NTC does not allow you to display the diversity of genotypic and antigenic representation of HCV in Russia, which reduces the quality control test systems. Similarly, the specificity of the test systems should be tested on a representative sample of negative samples, including donor serum and serum of persons from risk groups.

The technical result of the present invention is:

obtaining a national panel of sera, providing better control of ELISA test systems: for practical situations the analysis of plasma samples (sera) with and without hepatitis C virus, the presence or absence of antibodies to HCV, but with a diagnosis of hepatitis C or a healthy patient.

The technical result is achieved by creating a panel of lyophilized samples of plasma (serum)containing and not containing antibodies to different HCV subtypes and to different antigens of the virus spread in various regions of Russia.

This panel of anti-HCV built on a sample of 100 primary anti-HCV positive plasma samples, genotyped and sublimirovanny for HCV RNA, and 100 negative samples of plasma collected from healthy donors and persons from risk groups with rheumatoid factor and community antibodies.

The positive part of the panel includes plasma samples of patients positive for HCV RNA, and is formed in the form of a set of blocks containing separately antibodies to NS5, NS4, NS3 and Core antigens (samples No. 1-100).

The negative part of the panel includes samples of plasma donors that do not contain antibodies to HIV-1/2, HBV, HCV and syphilis, HBsAg, risk not infected with HCV (samples No. 101-200). For the strict control of specificity in the negative block included heterophile serum rheumatoid factor (RF) and autoimmune antibodies.

Invited panel (P anti-HCV) lyophilized sera containing and not containing anti-HCV, obtained from individuals infected with hepatitis C virus, volunteers and blood donors. The positive part of the panel includes plasma samples of individuals infected with hepatitis C virus (samples No. 1 to No. 100), the negative part of the panel includes samples of plasma donors, persons from risk groups and volunteers not infected with HCV (samples No. 101-200).

The positive part of the panel consists of 4 blocks of plasma samples, mostly positive in PCR for HCV RNA and having high levels of aminotransferases.

Each block positive side of the panel has its own characteristics.

Samples of block 1 (No. 1-25) certified by genotype and subtype of HCV. Block 1 includes serum 1, 2 and 3 genotypes different from tipov (1a, 1b, 2A and 3A), distributed on the territory of Russia. This sample unit 1 contain antibodies to NS5 antigen along with antibodies to other antigens.

2nd block formed from plasma samples with a positive result in PCR, partially sublimirovanny. Note that samples of unit 2 must contain antibodies to the NS4 antigen along with antibodies to other antigens.

3rd block is composed of plasma samples with a positive result in PCR, partially sublimirovanny. This sample block 3, be sure to contain antibodies to NS3 antigen along with antibodies to other antigens.

4th block is composed of plasma samples with a positive result in PCR, partially sublimirovanny. This sample block 4 must contain antibodies to core antigen along with antibodies to other antigens.

Negative block panel composed of samples of plasma donors, volunteers and representatives of the risk groups.

The unit included samples with heterophile antibodies, including human antibodies to mouse serum samples with rheumatoid factor and autoimmune antibodies. This negative part of the unit allows for strict control of specificity of diagnostics.

Each sample panel certified by immuno-biological and biochemical properties. Range of antibodies determined the Yali by asking sample panel sample panel nishtanah sera PHV106 (7) on the same microplate.

The panel is designed to perform the state control of the quality of each series of licensed anti-HCV test systems and for the certification of new diagnostics.

The panel can be used to determine the titer of anti-HCV antibodies of different subtypes.

A panel of sera should be stored at temperature (2-6)°C.

Measurement of the volume of plasma.

Measure the volume of each plasma using a sterile glass measuring cylinder.

Packing plasma samples.

From each gemikona in a sterile room in the kelp automatic pipette select 10 aliquot (1±0,05) ml plasma into a plastic test tube "Eppendorf" with a capacity of 1.5 ml for the control of biochemical parameters and to study viral markers in PCR and ELISA. The tubes close to each tube permanent marker write the code number of the plasma sample.

The remaining volume of plasma Packed in sterile plastic containers with a capacity of 25 ml In each container permanent marker write the code number.

Storage of plasma samples.

Gemany with donor plasma, and aliquots placed in storage in a freezer at a temperature of from minus 20°C to minus 35°C. Gemany to processing stored under these conditions for up to 10 years. Pets single freezing and thawing of serum.

The control aliquot plasma methods PCR and ELISA.

2 aliquots of each plasma passed in ELISA the laboratory for testing samples for the content of HBs antigen, antibodies to HCV, HIV-1,2 types of the anti-HBs. ELISA analysis carried out on imported or domestic, certified gisk named after. Laurasia, enzyme immunoassay systems (table 3).

Control of biochemical parameters.

One aliquot of each plasma sample in the Eppendorf passed in a biochemical laboratory for monitoring of biochemical parameters (color, aminotransferases, total protein content, pH). The protein content is determined by micromethods Lowry (table 3).

Samples plasmas that do not meet the requirements for biochemical parameters, rejected and disposed of.

Adding to the serum solution preservative.

In each gamecon with plasma add 2% solution of thimerosal and gentamicin at a rate of 0.5 ml each bacteriostatic per 100 ml of serum, and the solution of calcium chloride to precipitate the ballast proteins. Serum (recalcification plasma) are thoroughly mixed. The final concentration of thimerosal in serum is 0.01% and gentamicin of 0.01%.

Preparation of pooled donor sera.

From native serum samples that do not contain markers of viral infections, prepare the pool from at least 10 donors.

Stable pool of sera used as matrix - diluent solution (PP) for the preparation of positive samples MP. Bring the solution pH to 6.8-7.2 at room temperature with n is a power of 0.1 N NaOH or 0.1 N HCl. The solution is poured in sterile containers at 250-500 ml and stored at 2-8°C for no more than 1 month. Frozen at a temperature of minus 35°C, the solutions can be stored for 10 years.

- Nishtana sera panel PHV 106 BBI (Boston, USA).

3. Preparation of positive samples panel.

For the formation of 1, 2, 3, and 4 blocks positive side of the panel study research results positive samples in Poland, in screening and confirmatory ELISA, which determine the levels of aminotransferases.

Serum samples containing anti-NS5 antibodies and positive in PCR (with a certain genotype and subtype HCV), form block 1; serum samples containing anti-NS4 antibodies positive in PCR, form block 2; serum samples containing anti-NSS antibodies positive in PCR or high levels of aminotransferases, form a 3-th block; serum samples containing anti-Core antibody positive in PCR or high levels of aminotransferases, form 4-th block of the positive side of the panel.

Using PP serum blocks from the 1 St to 4-th normalized in the range of 1.5-5 OPCretefor the desired antibodies (figure 1).

OPCrete- On the scale of the optical spectrometer entire range of values of optical density (OD) is from 0 to 4 PU serum Samples human blood split this range into 2 areas: area of OP healthy donors and area infected patients. The boundary between the area values OP donors and infected patients determines the OD value at which the sample test of blood (serum) with equal probability can be evaluated as positive (infectious)and negative (healthy donor). This boundary value OP called in ELISA diagnosis of critical OP and denote abbreviated OPCreteor international designation is Cut off.

In accordance with this ODA is by dividing all samples serum panels must be in ELISA OD value> OPCrete(positive samples) or less OPCrete(negative samples).

In the manufacture of candidates in positive samples nizkotatranski standard toolbar developer selects the coefficients of the cultivation of native sera such that, ELISA OD diluted sera exceeded OPCrete1.5-2.0 times.

Likewise, when the selection of candidates for negative samples panel a developer selects sera with OD<OPCrete.

Calculate OPCreteaccording to the formula given in the Instructions for use of the used test system.

Just so prepare 120 samples for the positive side of the panel.
