For HIV early detection, you will only need to provide a blood sample. For the private HIV Testing, you don't need to perform any prior preparation, so there is no need to fast or do anything beforehand. No exam is required either, so you don't have to worry about undressing or swabbing.
One tube of blood will be drawn from you at the lab center. We use this sample to complete an HIV RNA test. Unlike the HIV I & II Antibodies screening, which looks for the presence of antibodies to HIV in your blood, the early detection HIV check looks for the presence of the actual HIV virus in your sample. This screening is FDA approved and is one of the most accurate early detection methods available. If the results are positive, follow up lab work will be scheduled and another blood sample will need to be submitted. Your rapid HIV test will only take approximately fifteen minutes.
Early HIV testing is recommended if you believe you have been exposed to the HIV virus within the past two weeks. Unlike our HIV I & II antibodies screening, which is most accurate at least a month after exposure, early HIV testing can detect the presence of the virus as early as 6 days after exposure. Regular HIV checks are recommended as part of your standard sexual health practices, especially if you have had unprotected sex with a partner that is infected.
Unlike the HIV I & II Antibodies STD check, which looks for antibodies indicating the viral infection, the HIV early detection check screens for the RNA of the virus itself in a patient's plasma. Because this diagnostic procedure does not rely on waiting for the body's response to the infection, it is one of the earliest and most accurate methods of HIV early detection testing.
