as far as i know Organon Teknika Vironostika HIV Uni-Form II is a fourth gen assay, tests for both HIV 1-2 and p24.
Vironostika HIV-1 plus O is a group O specific third gen test.
Vironostika HIV-1 is a third generation assay (by the way it's the assay used in Orasure testing).

The vironostika HIV1 is the standard HIV test administered at Quest and LabCorp. etc., It is a 2nd generation assay according to Organon Tech., I called them directly, and FYI the O in the 3rd generation test does not stand for Type O it is Oral fluids, If anyone knows where you can receive the uniform 4th generation assay could you let me know
