Diagnosis of HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 infection in cadaveric or hemolyzed serum specimens from asymptomatic patients with or without risk factors for HIV infection (assay kit is FDA-approved for testing cadaveric or hemolyzed blood specimens)
|Test ID||Reporting Name||Available Separately||Always Performed|
|HIVDI||HIV Ab Confirm / Differentiation, S||Yes||No|
This test begins with HIV-1/-2 antibody EIA. If HIV-1/-2 antibody EIA is reactive, then HIV antibody confirmation/differentiation (by immunochromatographic method) is performed at an additional charge.
This is the appropriate test for testing asymptomatic individuals.
This test is not appropriate for testing symptomatic individuals. For testing hemolyzed specimens from symptomatic patients (ie, diagnostic purposes) with or without risk factors for HIV infection, order HV1CD / HIV-1 and HIV-2 Antibodies for Cadaveric or Hemolyzed Specimens, Serum.
