The HIV RNA Qualitative test, utilizing Real-Time Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-qPCR), detects HIV RNA in a patient’s blood sample. This highly sensitive method amplifies and quantifies viral RNA, enabling early detection of HIV infection, particularly during the acute phase when antibody tests may yield false-negative results. Real-time RT-PCR provides rapid and accurate diagnosis, crucial for timely intervention and prevention of HIV transmission.
