 12/6/18 - FDA Approves Expanded Use for Ortho Clinical Diagnostics VITROS HIV Combo Test

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Pharma Business Week Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, a global leader of in vitro diagnostics, announced that its VITROS Immunodiagnostic Products HIV Combo Reagent Pack and Calibrator (VITROS HIV Combo test) received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use on Ortho's VITROS ECi/ECiQ Immunodiagnostic Systems. The VITROS HIV Combo test was previously approved for use on Ortho's VITROS 5600 Integrated System and Ortho's VITROS 3600 Immunodiagnostic System (see also Ortho Clinical Diagnostics).

VITROS HIV Combo, a fourth-generation test, detects both HIV-1 and HIV-2 antibodies (Ab) and the p24 antigen (Ag). By detecting the antigen itself, rather than only the antibodies to the antigen, Ortho's VITROS HIV Combo detects HIV-1 acute infection earlier than previous generations of tests1.
