I understand that PCR - RNA HIV test or NAAT is still relatively new and blood banks
use it for testing blood donors/organs. Surly that would imply that NAAT test
'much better' compared to antibody or p24 alone? which are 'supposedly' - gold standard in 2013 for routine testing, even so that BASHH guidelines recommend it as a 'first line' for diagnostic purposes. Of course I understand NAAT is expensive and very time consuming and NHS simply can't afford it.
