This test should be used in conjunction with clinical presentation and other laboratory markers. A patient's response to therapy depends on multiple factors including patient compliance, percentage of resistant virus population, dosing, and drug pharmacology issues. Resistance interpretations may vary with test methodology.
Some insertions or deletions may be difficult to detect using this software. This test may not detect minor HIV-1 populations less than 20 percent of the total population.
