Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is most commonly transmitted sexually, but can also be contracted through IV drug use and less likely, blood transfusions. It is the virus that causes AIDS. This condition damages your immune system and can lead to serious illness, infections and many other symptoms.
There are two parts to the HIV test at ON DERMAND MEDICAL TESTING
1. The first part is an initial blood screen. A negative result means there are no HIV antibodies in your blood, but false positives can occasionally occur.
2. If the screen is positive, the lab will run a confirmation test called a Western Blot.
