BACKGROUND The Performance Evaluation Program for HIV-1 incidence tests provided quality assurance services to laboratories conducting the serological testing algorithm for recent HIV seroconversion by use of a modified less-sensitive version of the Vironostika HIV-1 MicroElisa System assay. We report on the performance of the assay using proficiency testing and quality control materials tested from 2001 to 2008. METHODS Two sets of 5 blinded serum panels using common calibration and quality… CONTINUE READING
