HIV lab test in Baton Rouge




HIV Human Immunodeficiency Virus Lab Testing

Relax.  Take a deep breath.  Affordable Laboratory Services is here to provide you with expert and private testing results. Whether a doctor has suggested that you be tested for HIV, or you simply want to know more about your own health, we're here to help. This test is available at our labs in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas.


Why The Test is Suggested:

This test determines whether or not the HIV infection is present.  HIV attacks your body's immune system that normally fights off infection, and that's what can lead to AIDS.  It can take anywhere from several weeks to six months for HIV antibodies to appear in the blood of someone who has been infected.  Because of this, testing is often done at six weeks, three months, and six months after possible exposure.


Reasons to have an HIV test done:

  • Early detection & treatment means a healthier, longer life

  • Learn how to stay negative if you don't test positive

  • To screen blood and organ donors

  • To screen pregnant women

If you are pregnant, an HIV test can benefit both you and your child.  Pregnant women who find out that they are infected with HIV and receive treatment are less likely to pass the virus on to their baby than women who aren't treated for HIV.


Tests to detect HIV include:

  • Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)

  • Western blot

  • Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)

  • Indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA)
