We present here a rapid and simple technique for processing human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected plasma by high-speed centrifugation. HIV type 1 virions are pelleted from up to 1 ml of plasma, gently lysed with a nonionic detergent, and directly amplified. The procedure has few manipulations and requires approximately 1.5 h for the processing of 24 samples. Viral recovery ranges from 80 to 90%, with an analytical sensitivity approaching 20 copies/ml.
