The fourth-generation HIV-1/O/2 assay is acknowledged to detect acute HIV infection 4 to 12 days earlier than third-generation assays. Coupled with supplemental tests and clinical information, this cascade can help decrease the spread of HIV infection. According to the CLSI guideline, anyone testing positive by a fourth-generation screening assay and supplemental tests (either antibody or RNA detection) should initiate care and follow-up tests for clinical staging.1
