CE-IVD

The cobas® HIV-1 is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test for the quantitation of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) in EDTA plasma of HIV-1-infected individuals.

This test is intended for use in conjunction with clinical presentation and other laboratory markers of disease progression for the clinical management of HIV-1-infected patients. This test can be used for confirmation of HIV-1 infection in antibody reactive individuals, and to assess patient prognosis by measuring the baseline HIV-1 level, or to monitor the effects of antiretroviral therapy by measuring changes in HIV-1 RNA levels during the course of antiretroviral treatment.

US-IVD

The cobas® HIV-1 is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test for the quantitation of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) in EDTA plasma of HIV-1-infected individuals using the automated cobas® 6800/8800 Systems for specimen processing, amplification and detection. The test can quantitate HIV-1 RNA over the range of 20-10,000,000 copies/mL (33 to 1.67 x 107 International Units/mL).

This test is intended for use in conjunction with clinical presentation and other laboratory markers for the clinical management of HIV-1 infected patients. The test can be used to assess patient prognosis by measuring the baseline HIV-1 level or to monitor the effects of antiretroviral therapy by measuring changes in HIV-1 RNA levels during the course of antiretroviral treatment.

The cobas® HIV-1 is not intended for use as a screening test for the presence of HIV-1 in donated blood or plasma or as a diagnostic test to confirm the presence of HIV-1 infection.

Accurately quantify and detect HIV-1

The innovative cobas® HIV-1 dual-target assay enables accurate detection and quantification even in the presence of drug-induced mutations, driving better decisions for a positive impact on patients’ lives.
