Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

This test begins with HIV-1/-2 antigen and antibody screen by chemiluminescence immunoassay. If the screen result is reactive, then HIV-1/-2 antibody confirmation/differentiation test by immunochromatographic method is performed at an additional charge.


If HIV-1/-2 antibody confirmation/differentiation test is negative for both HIV-1 antibody and HIV-2 antibody, or indeterminate/negative for HIV-1/HIV-2 antibody, or indeterminate/indeterminate for HIV-1/ HIV-2 antibody, then HIV-1 RNA prenatal will be performed at an additional charge.
