Advisory Information


1. This test is not intended for testing symptomatic individuals (ie, diagnostic purposes). For testing hemolyzed specimens from such patients with or without risk factors for HIV infection, order HV1CD / HIV-1 and HIV-2 Antibodies for Cadaveric or Hemolyzed Specimens, Serum.

2. New York State clients: This test should not be requested for maternal/newborn HIV screening on specimens originating in New York State due to state regulatory requirements for expedited result reporting.



Additional Testing Requirements


If the initial EIA result is negative and this test was ordered as a follow-up evaluation of a specimen with a reactive rapid HIV antibody test result, clients must call 800-533-1710 or 507-266-5700 to request supplemental testing for HIV antibody confirmation/differentiation by immunochromatography (HIVDI). The HIVDI / HIV-1 and HIV-2 Antibody Confirmation and Differentiation, Serum test is not FDA-approved for testing cadaveric specimens. If performed, test results will be reported with a disclaimer.
