Will HIV show up on another Titer test??

Sep 9, 2012

I was wondering, if I received a titer test for something else, say to test for antibodies to hepatitis B to see if I needed a booster shot, would HIV antibodies appear on that test or does each titer test only test specifically for its intended antibody?? Thank you!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

No, it will not show up on another test. You need to have a specific test for each virus.
