HIV-1 and HIV-2 EIA Antibody Screen with Reflex to HIV-1 WB  

The HIV-1/2 EIA detects antibodies to both Human Immunodeficiency Virus type 1 (HIV-1) and type 2 (HIV-2). This assay utilizes recombinant HIV-1 and HIV-2 proteins and detects both IgG and IgM classes of antibodies; however the assay does not differentiate HIV-1 from HIV-2 infection. Specimens which are repeatedly reactive in the combination HIV-1/HIV-2 EIA will be confirmed using the testing algorithm suggested by the CDC (MMWR 41:RR12, 1992). HIV-Antibody Western blot (Unit Code 41070) will be performed for an additional charge.

This test is approved for New York patient testing.
