Interpretive Data
This test detects human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) RNA from Group M, N and O subtypes; it does not detect HIV-1 proviral DNA. A result of "Not Detected" does not rule out HIV-1 RNA concentrations below the limit of detection of the assay or the presence of inhibitors in the patient specimen. The diagnosis of HIV-1 infection should not be made based solely on a single HIV-1 test result. Diagnosis requires repeat and confirmatory testing as recommended by U.S. Health and Human Services Guidelines. Improper specimen handling can cause false negatives or contamination.

This assay should not be used for blood donor screening, associated re-entry protocols, or for screening Human Cell, Tissues and Cellular Tissue-Based Products (HCT/P).
