The Human Immunodeficiency Virus-2 (HIV-2) Detection PCR Test is a sophisticated diagnostic procedure designed to specifically identify the presence of HIV-2 RNA in an individual’s blood. Unlike its more prevalent counterpart, HIV-1, HIV-2 is less transmissible and predominantly found in West African countries, although cases have been reported globally. This test utilizes the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technique, a highly sensitive and accurate method that amplifies small segments of the virus’s RNA, allowing for early detection even when the viral load is low.

Conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility renowned for its advanced diagnostic technologies and expertise in molecular biology, this test is crucial for the early diagnosis and management of HIV-2. Early detection through the PCR test enables healthcare providers to initiate appropriate antiretroviral therapy (ART), significantly improving the quality of life and reducing the risk of virus transmission to others.

The cost of the HIV-2 Detection PCR Test at DNA Labs UAE is 1070 AED. This price reflects the complexity of the testing process and the sophisticated equipment used. For individuals at risk or those seeking confirmation of their HIV status, this test provides a reliable and accurate assessment, ensuring timely and effective treatment and care.

Test Details

The Human Immunodeficiency Virus-2 (HIV-2) Detection PCR Test is a diagnostic test used to detect the presence of HIV-2 in a person’s blood. HIV-2 is a less common and less aggressive strain of the virus compared to HIV-1, which is the most common strain worldwide. The PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test is a highly sensitive and specific molecular technique that amplifies and detects the genetic material (RNA or DNA) of the virus. This test can accurately identify the presence of HIV-2 in a person’s blood sample, even at low levels.

The HIV-2 Detection PCR Test is usually recommended for individuals who may have been exposed to HIV-2, especially in regions where this strain is more prevalent, such as West Africa. It is also used for confirmation in cases where initial screening tests have indicated the presence of HIV-2 antibodies.

It is important to note that the HIV-2 Detection PCR Test is specific for HIV-2 and does not detect HIV-1. Therefore, it is typically used in combination with other tests, such as the HIV-1/2 antibody test, to provide a comprehensive diagnosis and determine the specific strain of the virus.

Early detection of HIV-2 is crucial for timely intervention and management of the infection. If the test result is positive, further medical evaluation and monitoring will be required, and appropriate treatment options will be discussed with the individual.
