The Supplement edited By Richard L. Hodinka and Christine Ginocchio contains a
review of the highlights of the 2016 HIV Diagnostics Conference and six
key papers presented at the meeting. Important issues discussed
include performance characteristics of laboratory and CLIA-waived tests,
including the use of alternative specimen types, information on new
tests used for multiplexing, incidence assays, and the need for
simplified nucleic acid based tests.
