DNA Test for Hiv
DNA Test for Hiv

The DNA test for HIV infection can detect the presence of the virus in the body much earlier than the standard test, usually around 7-10 days after infection.Shortly after a person becomes infected with HIV, the body begins to make antibodies that specifically recognize HIV. Antibodies are proteins that try to fight off an infection. Each kind of antibody recognizes only the infection it is designed to fight.In the case of HIV infection, these antibodies are not effective at fighting the virus. DITC – DNA identity Testing Center Infidelity Test is a two-step test that can detect the presence of DNA (semen or vaginal fluids) on a forensic sample and then (if desired) compare this DNA to the DNA on a comparison sample.

Our staff works hard to make the DNA Identity Testing Center your choice of provider for all DNA testing services. We ensure superior quality, service and convenience to our clients. In our commitment to providing convenience, please know that we provide a free DNASwabTM Home DNA Collection Kit for use in all types of private DNA tests.

HIV Antibody Test
HIV Antibody Test
This test shows whether a person has been infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Information on this page concentrates mainly on HIV antibody testing. Antibody tests are also known as ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) tests.
Antigen Test
Antigens are the substances found on a foreign body or germ that trigger the production of antibodies in the body. The antigen on HIV that most commonly provokes an antibody response is the protein P24. Early in the infection, P24 is produced in excess and can be detected in the blood serum by a commercial test (although as HIV becomes fully established in the body it will fade to undetectable levels). P24 antigen tests are sometimes used to screen donated blood, but they can also be used for testing for HIV in individuals, as they can detect HIV earlier than standard antibody tests.
PCR Test
The whole process of extracting genetic material and testing it with a PCR test is referred to as Nucleic Acid-amplification Testing or 'NAT'. PCR tests detect the genetic material of HIV itself, and can identify HIV in the blood within two or three weeks of infection.PCR tests come in two forms: DNA PCR and RNA PCR.
DNA Test for HIV
DNA Test for HIV
The DNA test (properly known as NAAT, for Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing) looks for HIV directly, and can detect its presence much earlier than the antibody test. (This test is very similar to the viral load test used to monitor whether an HIV-infected patient's medications are controlling the virus.)
