HIV-2 Test, Early Detection
HIV-2 DNA PCR
(Human Immunodeficiency Virus 2, Qualitative PCR)
Nobel Prize-winning PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) technology.
7-14 business days.
Early detection of HIV-2 infection, before 3 months.
NOTE: HIV-2 infections are rare outside of specific West African nations (Ivory Coast, Ghana).
HIV Virus Transmission
The routes of transmission for HIV-1 and HIV-2 are the same (via infected blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and/or breast milk); however, HIV-2 cases have been limited mostly to the Ivory Coast, Ghana, and other West African nations. For this reason, testing for HIV-2 is not usually recommended unless specific exposure to HIV-2 is suspected.
This HIV PCR test provides reliable results days or weeks from possible infection.
