Do you prefer one diagnostic kit test over another & why?
Dear Dr. Chung,
Do you prefer one diagnostic kit test over another & why? ELISA or PCR
perhaps? Also, for confirmation is PCR always the best choice?
Dr Chung Writes-
ELISA makes sense for initial diagnosis, but PCR should always be used to
document presence of virus in the bloodstream - only those with (+) PCR
tests should be treated. PCR is the best confirmatory test.
