This test detects antibodies and antigens seen in HIV infection. HIV is transmitted by sex and also by sharing needles (for injecting drugs). HIV is not curable, but can be managed with medication.

This test is an antigen/antibody combination test, sometimes called a fourth-generation test. The test detects antibodies to both types of HIV (HIV-1 and HIV-2) and the p24 antigen. It is the type of test recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).1View Example HIV Results (Negative and Positive)

This test is used to screen for and help diagnose HIV infection.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends:2

  • An HIV test for all people up to age 64
  • An HIV test at least once a year for those at high risk, which includes men who have sex with men, people with multiple sex partners, injection drug users who share needles, and people with hepatitis or tuberculosis.

The CDC also recommends:2

  • HIV screening for all pregnant women, regardless of risk.
