HIV1 Genotype and Integrase Inhibitor Resistance by Sequencing
Ordering Recommendation

HIV-1 genotyping provides antiretroviral susceptibility information for protease inhibitors (PI), reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI, NNRTI), and integrase inhibitors. Intended for patients with viral load >1000 copies/mL.

Compliance Statement B: For laboratory developed tests not using a RUO kit, and for FDA approved, cleared or 510(k) exempt assays with alterations. This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. The U. S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved or cleared this test; however, FDA clearance or approval is not currently required for clinical use. The results are not intended to be used as the sole means for clinical diagnosis or patient management decisions.

This test may be unsuccessful if the plasma HIV-1 RNA viral load is less than 1,000 HIV-1 RNA copies per mL of plasma.
