Definition : Serology reagents intended to corroborate (i.e., confirm) the results of a previous test for the presence of human immunodeficiency virus serotype 2 (HIV-2) antibodies. HIV-2 is a retrovirus of the genus Lentivirus, family Retroviridae, that may cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Confirmatory assays frequently use a different approach or a more specific methodology than the original test; they typically cost more and/or require more sophisticated devices or greater skills.
