Infection detected: HIV- early detection of HIV-1 by PCR
Technique used: HIV-1 by PCR
(also known as an HIV viral load test)
Test performance & window period: In order to achieve greater than 99% detection I recommend you wait at least 10 days after the last sexual contact before undergoing this kind of test. With conventional tests you would have to wait at least a month, so with our test you will get results much eariler.
This test employs PCR technology for ultrasenstive detection levels. It is therefore the way they routinely monitor blood donated for transfusions. In my experience, it has been an extremely useful tool for HIV detection when antibodies have still not appeared in blood.
