Early HIV Detection (HIV-1), Qualitative, RNA

Laboratory: LabCorp
Early HIV Detection (HIV-1), Qualitative, RNA
Laboratory: Quest Diagnostics

The HIV-1, Qualitative, RNA tests for recent exposure as soon as 28 days. A typical HIV test is not able to detect infection for as long as 3 months. When a individual is infected with HIV, their body produces antibodies to fight the infection. If there are antibodies in a person's blood, it means they have been infected with HIV. Most people have detectable antibodies within 6 to 12 weeks of HIV infection. A standard HIV antibody blood test is highly reliable from three months after potential exposure.
