BACKGROUND HIV-1 RNA is a key parameter for reliable diagnosis and treatment of HIV-1 infection. The determination of HIV-1 RNA reduces the pre-seroconversion period in the diagnosis of HIV-1 infection and supports clinical management of HIV-1-infected patients. OBJECTIVES AND STUDY DESIGN The COBAS AmpliPrep/COBAS TaqMan HIV-1 Test combines automated extraction of total nucleic acids on the COBAS AmpliPrep Instrument with real-time PCR on the COBAS TaqMan Analyzer, thus greatly reducing… CONTINUE READING
