FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Bayer AG has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its automated assay for hepatitis C virus (HCV), the German drugs and chemicals group said in a statement on Tuesday.

The HCV assay is manufactured and sold by Bayer Diagnostics for Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, Bayer said. The product is based on technology from Chiron Corp.

"We are currently working on a quick market launch for the product in the United States," a Bayer spokeswoman said.
