December 7 | 10:00am - 3:00pm
Houston, TX


HIV diagnostics are now a staple in the clinical laboratory. Rapid advances in technology have allowed for drastic improvements in the laboratory’s ability to detect and diagnose HIV. As newer methodologies emerge, it is important for both clinical and public health laboratories to understand and incorporate these new applications and understand their limitations. This program will provide an in-depth overview of the current state of HIV diagnosis including the following topics: 1) Overview of current HIV tests and their use in the diagnostic algorithm plus discussion of current APHL reporting language document; 2) Challenging HIV diagnostic cases using the current algorithm; 3) Challenges of the current HIV diagnostic algorithm: Management of PrEP and diagnosis of acute HIV infection; 4) Four Letter Words in HIV Diagnostic Testing - CLIA-Waived Test Update: How do these assays fit into the current HIV diagnostic algorithm? AND… IQCP: Are your HIV serology tests in compliance?; 5) New HIV tests on the horizon and how they may affect the current algorithm; 6) Quality assurance programs for HIV diagnostic testing – issues surrounding laboratory validation of new HIV diagnostic tests.
