Primary Outcome Measures:
  • PRISM HIV O Plus Test Data for Specificity [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Negative HIV status was determined by the results of the HIV-1/HIV-2 comparator assay and HIV-1 qualitatitve RNA.

  • PRISM HIV O Plus Test Data for Sensitivity [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Final HIV status was determined according to a supplemental testing algorithm for specimens positive by the investigational assay. Supplemental testing involved HIV-1 Western blot, HIV-2 EIA, HIV-2 Western blot and HIV-1 ribonucleic acid (RNA).

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: ABBOTT PRISM HIV O Plus assay for Specificity
All subjects will have their blood tested by the investigational HIV test.
Device: collection of follow-up sample based on PRISM HIV O Plus result
Test blood samples with investigational HIV assay. If results are reactive, donors may be deferred and asked to return for a follow-up blood draw.
No Intervention: ABBOTT PRISM HIV O Plus Assay for Sensitivity
Samples collected from specimen vendors or from specimen collection studies were tested by the investigational HIV assay.
