The emergence of integrase drug resistance mutations has been observed in vitro and in patients experiencing virologic failure on raltegravir in clinical trials. Twenty three percent of patients receiving raltegravir in a clinical trial experienced virologic failure at 48 weeks and genotypic analysis detected raltegravir associated resistance mutations in 68% of virologic failures. This assay implifies and sequences the HIV-1 integrase gene and reports mutations at positions associated with integrase inhibitor drug resistance.

Collect blood in sterile tubes containing EDTA anticoagulant
(lavender-top) or PPT (white-top) tube.
Separate plasma from the cells by centrifugation within 6 hours after
collection, transfer the plasma to a separate plastic screw-cap vial.
Ship frozen.
