hi there,
Am not Indian but i have a question:

Is HIV-2 DNA PCR done by SLR reliable ?
My question is not to use it as a confirmity test, but i have just done the test and it was written at the footnote that the test was developed and evaluated by SLR in Mumbai.

How accurate and reliable can the result of this test? does SLR have good reputation in India?

You can visit any ranbaxy pathology lab(SRL Laboratories). It is scattered throughout Mumbai, Thane and Vashi. They have different testing options. PCR DNA, PCR RNA, Western blot and Elsia as well as P24 antigen test. The cost varies from which one you opt for. PCR is 2200 INR, Western Blt is 2600 INR and so on.....
