Also called the HIV 4th Generation Test, this is a common, affordable, and accurate option for HIV screening.
This test screens for HIV, an STD that can lead to AIDS if not treated. HIV is a virus that weakens your immune system by destroying important cells that fight disease and infection. If you’re sexually active, it’s important to know your HIV status so you don’t infect others. There is no cure for HIV, but it can be controlled with treatment.
This test allows detection of acute HIV-1 infection based on the presence of p24 antigen, before seroconversion occurs, allowing for earlier diagnosis than with previous tests. It can also detect HIV-1 and HIV-2 post-seroconversion, based on antibodies. If the HIV-1/HIV-2 antigen/antibody test is positive, an antibody-based HIV-1/HIV-2 test is done (at additional charge) to confirm infection and identify whether it is caused by HIV-1 or HIV-2. However, the HIV-1/HIV-2 differentiation test will be negative during acute infection (prior to development of specific antibodies). If the antibody-based HIV-1/HIV-2 test is negative, the blood specimen will be reflex-tested for the presence of HIV-1 RNA (at additional charge) to identify patients with acute HIV-1 infection.
Most people with HIV do not initially have symptoms. Those with symptoms may experience flu-like symptoms including fever, chills, rash, night sweats, muscle aches, sore throat, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes, or mouth ulcers lasting 1-2 weeks.
Antibodies begin to develop several weeks after exposure to the virus, whereas the p24 antigen begins developing immediately then tapers off once antibodies are developed. Since this test screens for both, it is a good option for testing at any point after exposure. HIV testing is recommended for anyone who is sexually active. There are no fasting requirements for this test. Supplements containing Biotin should not be consumed within 72 hours prior to testing.
If you previously had a negative test but are still experiencing symptoms, you may want to consider taking the test again since the average window period for tests to detect HIV is 3-12 weeks.
No fasting required. Stop biotin consumption at least 72 hours prior to the collection.
