HIV Testing Options
HIV Antibody Test
- Also known as Immunochemiluminometric assay (ICMA) test with Reflex to Western Blot
- Tests for HIV antibodies in the blood
- Generally takes 25 days -2 months for the body to develop enough antibodies to be detected through testing
- HIV Antibody tests are usually accurate in detecting HIV infection, and the test has a low false result rate after the first few weeks
- In cases where results are negative, repeat testing should be conducted 3 months post exposure
Western Blot Test
- This test is automatically performed on the same blood sample at no additional cost to confirm a positive HIV antibody test result.
- If the HIV Antibody Test comes back negative, the Western blot will not be performed.
- Tests for HIV antibodies in the blood using a prepared protein sample
- Indeterminate Western blot test results may signal a HIV infection; however, our doctors recommend re-testing 3 months post-exposure as indeterminate results may become more clearly positive after time has passed if the person tested is in fact HIV positive
HIV RNA Early Detection Test
- Also known as Transcription-mediated amplification (TMA) test
- Test measures the presence of HIV RNA in the plasma of patients. Positive test results are indicative of acute(new) or primary infection
- Can detect HIV as early as 9-11 days after infection, or before antibodies are produced
- HIV RNA tests can be used to detect recent HIV infection and can also be used when antibody tests prove inconclusive
- If the test result is negative, the HIV Early Detection Test does not have to be repeated
