The fourth-generation HIV-1/2 test is used to detect acute HIV infection 4-12 days earlier than 3rd generation testing. It tests for both HIV antibodies and antigens. According to the Clinical & Laboratory Standards Institute, this test can help decrease the spread of the HIV infection as anyone who tests positive for the 4th generation screening can immediately begin follow-up care and tests for clinical staging.
This panel includes enzyme immunoassay (EIA) for antigen/antibody screen for HIV-1/2 with reflex to supplementary differentiation assay for HIV-1 or HIV-2. If results come back positive by the screening assay but negative by the supplementary antibody typing assay a reflex to qualitative nucleic acid amplification (NAA) shall be completed.
Individuals who have had unprotected sex or have shared needles with someone who may have been infected with HIV.
No special preparation is necessary prior to blood sample collection.
STD Counseling is available for positive HIV results. This includes one of our doctor's on staff calling you to notify you of your results, as well as some next action plans.
