hello doctors in the house, I have a serious and sensitive question to ask, and it goes like this

does conducting blood culture test in a laboratory reveals or detect HIV or any other virus in the blood?

No, a blood culture is a test that checks for foreign invaders like bacteria, yeast, and other microorganisms in your blood.

HIV testing involves looking for antibodies to the virus or gene sequences known to the virus.

Let's wait for the medical professionals.

Not at all
The blood is a sterile site
Blood culture is used to detect foreign bodies (bacteria or fungi) that may have invaded the bloodstream (septicaemia/sepsis) or a case for fever of unknown origin.

It's not used/conducted to detect hiv and other viruses in the blood stream
