Change of HIV serotyping method

Due to production issues, the Infection & Immunity laboratory at Imperial will be changing the assay used for HIV serotyping from the the Immunocomb HIV 1&2 Bispot assay to the Biorad Geenius HIV 1/2 Confirmation assay.
An internal evaluation of the new assay has shown an acceptable level of performance, and we therefore do not expect any significant impact on the service provided by the laboratory.
For further information, please see the letter from the department’s Consultant Virologist here

Please contact the laboratory at if you have any queries about the above change.
