A diagnostic test based on blotted viral proteins is commercially produced to confirm presence of antibodies against human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1). To perform the test the prefabricated strip has only to be incubated with test serum and developing reagents. About nine viral proteins are discernible on blots. Certain empirically found constellations of banding patterns confirm the primary test.
