Quest selects Roche’s automated HIV-1 viral load monitoring test

Roche Molecular Diagnostics : 20 May, 2008  (Application Story)
Quest Diagnostics, the USA's leading provider of diagnostic testing, information and services, has signed a multi-year agreement to use Roche Diagnostics’ COBAS AmpliPrep / COBAS TaqMan HIV-1 Test for HIV viral load testing.
Physicians use the test information to monitor the effects of antiretroviral therapy by measuring changes in HIV-1 RNA levels. Roche's newest HIV-1 viral load monitoring test is the first fully automated real-time PCR test approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

'We are pleased to continue what has been a strong partnership since Quest Diagnostics first began using our molecular HIV test 12 years ago,' said Whitney Green, senior vice-president for Molecular Diagnostics of Roche Diagnostics. 'We share Quest Diagnostics' commitment to its physicians who need the most accurate testing information to make the best treatment decisions for their patients.'
