Bdna

(Science: molecular biology) a test used to determine the amount of hiv (as well as other viruses) in blood Plasma.

The test uses a signal amplification technique, which creates a luminescent signal whose brightness depends on the viral rna present. Test results are calibrated in numbers of virus particle equivalents per millilitre of plasma. Bdna is similar in results but not in technique to the pcr test.
