The Level Of Accuracy Of The Vidas Test Method For The Detection Of HIV?
au ask… if the method with the vidas results uses the load method, what is the rapid load method and that % rate is accurate or not, I checked the hospital
vidas is a 4th generation HIV test, using an immunoassay technique (same as the rapid technique). VIDAS detects antibodies to HIV, and antigens to p24 at the same time. Sensitivity and specificity reached almost 100% in patients with chronic HIV, and 80% in patients with acute HIV (when performed within 15–20 days after exposure).
That's my answer, I hope you answer
