Our One Step Auto-HIV 1&2 Test provide a accurate screening test for HIV antibodies with 100% sensitiivityrelative to consensus with EIA supported by Western Blot assay in manufacturer's study.
Easy: Only one drop of blood is enough for the test.
Reliable: Qualitatively detect HIV1 and HIV2
Fast: Result in 15 minutes.
Principle of the procedure
The assay starts with a sample and diluent applied to the respective well. The HIV antigen-colloidal gold conjugate embedded in the sample pad reacts with the HIV antibody present in blood, serum or plasma sample forming conjugate/HIV antibody complex. As the mixture is allowed to migrate along the test strip, the conjugate/HIV antibody complex is captured by a second antibody immobilized on a membrane forming a colored test band in the test region. A negative sample does not produce a test band due to the absence of colloidal gold conjugate/HIV antibody complex. The antigens used in the conjugate test are recombinant proteins that correspond to highly immunoreactive regions of HIV1 and HIV2. A colored control band in the control region appears at the end of test procedure regardless of test result. This control band is the result of colloidal gold conjugate binding to the anti-HIV antibody immobilized on the membrane. The control band indicates that the colloidal gold conjugate is functional.
Notice to the testing result
Negative: A HIV-antibody negative result have a window period of up to 3 months . Thus the test should be repeated in 16 days. You could consider taking a HIV RNA test that shorten window period to 3-7 days.
Positive: All positive result must be confirmed by alternative test method. Please seek medical attention and further testing at once from local STD clinics or the department of health. AIDS Hotline:+852 2780-2211. Virtual AIDS Office of Hong Kong, Department of Health
