These studies confirm that commercial HIV-1 load assays vary in their ability to quantify different HIV-1 subtypes. This may be more apparent with individual patient samples than with 'spiked' panels. This variability emphasizes that it is preferable for patient samples to be tested with the same assay, and care should be taken where infection with unusual subtypes is suspected.
