Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.
This HIV-1/-2 antibody confirmatory evaluation begins with HIV-1 antibody by Western blot (WB) assay. If WB is negative, indeterminate or unreadable, then HIV-2 antibody evaluation is performed at an additional charge. If HIV-2 antibody evaluation is reactive, then HIV-2 antibody confirmation testing will be added at an additional charge.
