Most labs test only for HIV 1, but these tests can pickup an infection with HIV most of the time. HIV 2 isn't really a concern outside of Africa. Why don't you call Lab Corp and ask them.

unless you have been having sex in africa, HIV 2 is not a concern.

It it highly unlikley that 1) you have it, 2) they test for it.
