What is Cmia method for HIV?

The ARCHITECT HIV Ag/Ab Combo assay is a chemiluminescent microparticle immunoassay (CMIA) for the simultaneous qualitative detection of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) p24 antigen and antibodies to HIV type 1 (HIV-1 group M and group O) and/or type 2 (HIV-2) in human serum and plasma (EDTA and heparin).

Is Elisa or Cmia same?

From laboratory’s point of view, ELISA is less expensive than CMIA method for determination NGAL in urine. However, CMIA method allows rapid determination of urinary NGAL concentration through automated assay and it may be a convenient parameter for the routine diagnosis of renal diseases in the urine.

How do I read my HIV test results?

What Cmia means?

The current study we have focused on, the Chemiluminescent Microparticle Immuno Assay (CMIA), an advanced serological diagnostic technique, provides a rapid, cost-effective and reliable way to detect HCV, and therefore, is the method that was implemented for the diagnosis of hepatitis infection.

What is Cmia?

The Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA) is a California law that protects the confidentiality of individually identifiable medical information obtained by health care providers, health insurers, and their contractors.

What is a CLIA test?

The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) regulate laboratory testing and require clinical laboratories to be certified by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) before they can accept human samples for diagnostic testing. Each agency has a unique role in assuring quality laboratory testing.

Who does the Cmia apply to?

CMIA covers providers of health care, health care service plans, contractors, as well as “recipients” of that information. Employers should note that “recipients” are not defined under the CMIA and may have a broad range of applications.

Who is subject to Cmia?

The CMIA applies to entities beyond traditional health care providers. For example, entities such as pharmaceutical companies may be subject to CMIA requirements but unable to benefit from the CMIA exemption of the CCPA if they do not fall within the CMIA’s definition of a provider of health care.
