The Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1 and 2 Antibodies Western Blot Test is a highly specific laboratory technique used to confirm the presence of antibodies against HIV-1 and HIV-2 in human blood samples. This test is typically conducted as a follow-up to an initial positive result from a more general HIV screening test, such as an ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay). The Western Blot test provides a higher level of specificity by detecting the individual proteins (antigens) associated with HIV, thereby reducing the likelihood of false-positive results.

The process involves separating the HIV proteins by their molecular weight through gel electrophoresis and then transferring them to a membrane where they can be detected by antibodies labeled with a marker, providing visual confirmation of the presence of HIV antibodies. This makes the Western Blot test a crucial step in the definitive diagnosis of HIV infection.

At DNA Labs UAE, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1 and 2 Antibodies Western Blot Test is offered at a cost of 780 AED.

Diagnosis

The Western Blot Test is not used for diagnosing HIV infection on its own. It is used as a confirmatory test to support the initial positive or indeterminate result from a screening test. A positive Western Blot result indicates the presence of HIV antibodies and confirms the diagnosis of HIV infection.

If you suspect you may have been exposed to HIV or have any concerns about your sexual health, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional. Our trained technicians and specialized equipment ensure accurate and reliable results for the Human Immuno Virus 1 and 2 ANTIBODIES WESTERN BLOT Test.

Test Details

The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) 1 & 2 Antibodies Western Blot Test is a confirmatory test used to detect the presence of HIV antibodies in a person’s blood sample. It is typically used after an initial screening test, such as an HIV antibody test or an HIV rapid test, has produced a positive or indeterminate result.

The Western Blot Test works by separating and identifying specific proteins from the HIV virus in a person’s blood sample. These proteins are then matched with specific antibodies to determine if they are present, indicating a positive HIV infection.

The test is considered highly accurate and reliable, with a low rate of false positives. It is usually performed in a laboratory setting and requires specialized equipment and trained technicians to perform and interpret the results.

It is important to note that the Western Blot Test is not used for diagnosing HIV infection on its own. It is used as a confirmatory test to support the initial positive or indeterminate result from a screening test. A positive Western Blot result indicates the presence of HIV antibodies and confirms the diagnosis of HIV infection.
