Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.
This test begins with HIV-1/-2 antibody screen by the chemiluminescence immunoassay method. If HIV-1/-2 antibody screen chemiluminescence immunoassay result is reactive, then HIV-1/-2 antibody confirmatory evaluation is performed at an additional charge. HIV-1/-2 antibody confirmatory evaluation is a reflex test that includes HIV-1 Western blot assay and, when appropriate and at an additional charge, HIV-2 antibody screen by EIA, HIV-1 antibody confirmation by immunofluorescence assay, and HIV-2 antibody confirmation by line immunoassay.
