Currently Available HIV Phenotypic & Genotypic Assays

Jan 12, 2001

what are in the market all the currently available resistance assays

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Several commercial labs (LabCorp, Specialty Labs, Virologic, Quest, to name a few) offer either genotypic or phenotypic resistance testing or both. For the most part, phenotypic assays are proprietary technology from Virologic or Virco. Genotypic assays can be home-brew (designed or made by the lab doing the test) or commercial kits from companies like Visible Genetics.
