A incorporação do teste diagnóstico baseado na amplificação de ácidos nucleicos (NAT) para triagem de sangue no SUS: arranjos tecnológicos para a nacionalização do “NAT brasileiro”

Abstract : Nucleic acid based amplification tests (NAT) are employed as complementary tools to control the transmission of infectious diseases through contaminated blood. In 2002, a decree from the Brazilian Ministry of Health made compulsory the use of NAT by all the blood services in the country, a measure that was challenged by costs related to the test incorporation. As the strategy to introduce the test in the blood banks serving the public healthcare system (Sistema Único de Saúde), a public Consortium was constituted to develop a local version of the kit. On the basis of qualitative fieldwork, the authors investigate the strategies used by the Brazilian laboratories and universities to nationalize the kit through capturing and assembling its various components. The paper contributes to revealing the challenges and limits to the production of in vitro tests for infectious diseases in Brazil, as well as the repercussion of such an initiative to the national healthcare innovation system.
