PhenoSense HIV is a phenotypic HIV drug resistance assay and is the most widely used phenotypic test today. PhenoSense HIV utilizes proprietary leading-edge technology for a direct, rapid and precise measure of a patient's virus' sensitivity to antiretroviral drugs. Test results allow healthcare professionals to review the level of susceptibility or resistance that an individual’s virus has has to each antiretroviral drug in order to design an individualized treatment plan. PhenoSense HIV drug resistance results are also provided with one component of viral fitness, Replication Capacity (RC).
The report form includes drug resistance information for all of the approved
nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs), non-nucleoside reverse
transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs), and protease inhibitors (PIs).
