  1. Identification of nonanalytic issues in HIV-1 antibody testing using blind proficiency testing.

    Article - En anglais

    Blind proficiency testing was used to examine nonanalytic performance indicators for human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) antibody testing.

    Physician offices, clinics, and hospitals located throughout Southern California submitted simulated patient specimens to laboratories as routine test requests.

    A total of 32 laboratories were involved during five blind proficiency testing surveys.

    Turnaround time for a reactive specimen ranged from three to 17 days.

    Laboratory charges for evaluating a reactive specimen varied depending on the volume of testing, prevalence of reactive specimens, and whether screening and confirmatory tests were billed separately or as a package price.
