BACKGROUND New automated and ultrasensitive assays are becoming available to monitor HIV-1 plasma viral load, which is an essential marker for the clinical follow-up. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the performances of the VERSANT HIV-1 RNA 1.0 (kPCR) automated assay in a clinical laboratory setting. STUDY DESIGN Frozen plasma samples from various HIV-1 subtypes, previously analysed with the VERSANT HIV-1 RNA 3.0 (bDNA) in clinical routine, were retested with the new VERSANT kPCR assay.
