Processing Details:
Useful for: Use: The PhenoSense Integrase® assay is a phenotypic resistance test used to determine the susceptibility of a patient's HIV to integrase inhibitors. Integrase inhibitors block HIV replication by preventing the virus from integrating into the host cell's DNA. Raltegravir (Isentress®) is the first approved drug in this class of HIV antiretroviral drugs.

Do not send specimens until they are completely frozen, as nucleic acid degradation occurs rapidly at ambient and higher temperatures.
Specimen integrity is compromised with freeze/thaw cycles.
Include current viral load (≥500 copies/mL) on request form.
