BED assay

An enzyme immune assay (EIA) that detects increasing levels of anti-HIV IgG after seroconversion and can be used for detecting recent HIV infection. It uses a branched peptide that includes gp41 immunodominant sequences from HIV-1 subtypes B, E, and D. Developed by the US Centers for Disease Control, the test is approved in the US for use for surveillance purposes only.
