The HIV I & II Rapid Human Immunodeficiency Virus Test (Serum/Plasma) is a rapid immunoassay for the qualitative detection of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) type-1 and/or type-2 in serum or plasma.
Test contains single test line for detection of HIV 1 or HIV 2.
HIV is the etiologic agent of Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Testing human serum or plasma for the presence of HIV antibodies has proven an effective aid in determining whether an individual has been exposed to HIV. The HIV I & II Rapid Human Immunodeficiency Virus Test (Serum/Plasma) is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay based on the principle of the double antigen–sandwich technique. The membrane is coated with recombinant HIV recombinant antigens on the test line region of the device. When a specimen is applied at one end of the membrane, it reacts with HIV recombinant antigen coated gold conjugate in the test. If the serum or plasma contains antibodies to HIV-1 or HIV-2, a colored line will appear in the test line region, showing a positive result.
Add 1 drop of serum or plasma into the sample window using provided disposable dropper
Add 2 drops (60-70μl) of buffer
Read results within 15 Minutes. (Do not interpret the result after 20 minutes.)
Positive: Two lines appear. One coloured line should be in the control line region (C) and another apparent coloured line should be in the test line region (T).
Negative: One coloured line appears in the control line region(C). No line appears in the test line region (T).
Invalid: No visible band at all or test band without control band.
