Confidently and effectively quantify HIV-1
Stay one step ahead, with a dual-target HIV-1 approach
As the challenges you face evolve, stay one step ahead with cobas® HIV-1 for use on the cobas® 6800/8800 Systems, a next-generation, dual-target quantitative HIV-1 assay.
The rapidly mutating HIV-1 virus can evade quantification with a single target viral load assay.1,2 cobas® HIV-1 quantitative nucleic acid test for use on the cobas® 6800/8800 Systems targets two unique regions of the HIV-1 genome to improve genotype inclusivity, detects HIV-1 variants and potentially avoids under quantification.
Get improved sensitivity, coverage and security
Roche dual-target assays provide reliable results to confidently and effectively quantify HIV-1 with improved test sensitivity, coverage and security.
- Target two unique regions of the HIV-1 genome, gag and LTR, which are not subject to selective drug pressure.
- Confidently detect HIV-1 variants and potentially avoid under quantification.
- Accurately quantify HIV-1 RNA with a dual-target assay and contribute to optimal treatment decisions for patient management.
cobas® HIV-1 is an in vitro nucleic acid amplification test for the quantitation of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) in EDTA plasma of HIV-1-infected individuals using the automated cobas® 6800/8800 Systems for specimen processing, amplification and detection. The test can quantitate HIV-1 RNA over the range of 20-10,000,000 copies/mL (33 to 1.67 x 107 International Units/mL).
This test is intended for use in conjunction with clinical presentation and other laboratory markers for the clinical management of HIV-1 infected patients. The test can be used to assess patient prognosis by measuring the baseline HIV-1 level or to monitor the effects of antiretroviral therapy by measuring changes in HIV-1 RNA levels during the course of antiretroviral treatment.
cobas® HIV-1 is not intended for use as a screening test for the presence of HIV-1 in donated blood or plasma or as a diagnostic test to confirm the presence of HIV-1 infection.

This test is intended for use in conjunction with clinical presentation and other laboratory markers for the clinical management of HIV-1-infected patients. This test can be used for confirmation of HIV-1 infection in antibody reactive individuals and to assess patient prognosis by measuring the baseline HIV-1 level or to monitor the effects of antiretroviral therapy by measuring changes in HIV-1 RNA levels during the course of antiretroviral treatment.
