MultiSpot Rapid Testing for HIV

An AACC member has heard that the BioRad MultiSpot Rapid Test for HIV-1/2 antibodies will be discontinued next year, and is searching for another manual spot assay or lateral flow device that her lab can use aside from BioRad’s new Geenius. Other members don’t know of a viable alternative, but expressed concern that MultiSpot’s discontinuation will impact the ability of labs to use CDC’s algorithm for 4th-gen HIV testing.
