HIV 1 Early Detection Test - More Info
The HIV-1 RNA test, sometimes known as an HIV-1 early detection test, checks for HIV-1 RNA in the blood.
This HIV-1 RNA blood test uses a transcription-mediated amplification (TMA) methodology to check for HIV-1 RNA. The blood test is helpful in checking for a new HIV-1 infection, to confirm a positive HIV-1 screening test, and to resolve an inconclusive HIV-1 western blot. This particular lab test uses the APTIMA® HIV-1 RNA qualitative assay, an FDA-approved nucleic acid amplified test (NAAT), to determine results. As can be seen on the sample report link provided, the HIV-1 early detection test results are reported in a qualitative manner. In other words, a negative test result will be reported as not detected as opposed to reporting a number.
