Virologic Assays

Our labs offer advanced virologic assays on a fee-for-service basis, subsidized in part by the CFAR. Assays available include the quantitative viral outgrowth assay (QVOA) and tat-induced limiting diultion assay (TILDA) for measuring HIV reservoirs; the oligonucleotide ligation assay (OLA) for drug resistance; Illumina-based screening for HIV co-receptor tropism (CCR5 vs. CXCR4); and multiple approaches to HIV integration site (IS) determination. Some assays are available under CLIA-certified conditions.
