MT-2 assay to determine the syncytia-inducing (SI) versus non-syncytia-inducing (NSI) phenotype.
Viral coreceptor phenotyping (R5, X4, R5X4) in one of several cell-based coreceptor assays, to be selected in discussion with the requesting investigator.
Charge for the MT-2 SI/NSI or coreceptor phenotyping assay: $80 per sample for CFAR members ($100 for CFAR non-members).
