A model assay for HIV-1 using a non-competitive internal standard in quantitative RT-PCR was coupled with real-time detection of both analyte and internal standard (IS) signals in a closed system. Real-time detection by the PE-ABI Prism 7700 relied on TaqMan probes specific for HIV and IS. The exogenous, non-competitive IS RNA was added in the same, known amount to a series of HIV RNA standards. The threshold cycle ratio from this internal standard calibration curve was used in the quantitation of HIV. Two configurations of reporter labels were compared. The HEX-HIV:FAM-IS system was the most precise, with nearly half-log discrimination over a range of 102 through 105 copies HIV-1 RNA. The FAM- HIV:HEX-IS system was less precise, but more sensitive and resistant to sample inhibition. The analysis of these signals and their impact on the range and precision of HIV quantitation is discussed. The design and synthesis of the fluorescently-labelled probes is also described.
