Test ID: HIVDI    
HIV-1 and HIV-2 Antibody Confirmation and Differentiation, Serum

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Confirmation and differentiation of HIV-1 and HIV-2 antibodies in cadaveric blood or hemolyzed serum specimens that show reactive results with initial HIV serologic screening assays

 

This test is not useful as a screening test for HIV infection in symptomatic or asymptomatic individuals. It is not to be used as a screening or confirmatory test for blood donor specimens.

 

This test is not useful for maternal or newborn HIV screening for specimens originating in New York State.

 

This test is not useful for follow-up testing of patients with reactive results from any rapid HIV tests. These patients should be tested subsequently with laboratory-based HIV antigen and antibody combination immunoassays, such as HIVDX / HIV-1 and HIV-2 Antigen and Antibody Diagnostic Evaluation, Plasma, per the latest CDC recommended HIV testing algorithm.
