HIV 1+2 Antibody Rapid Test Kits
One step anti-HIV rapid test kits are intended to be used for blood screening as an aid for the diagnosis of HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 infection.
One-step anti-HIV Rapid Test
One step anti-HIV 1+2 test strip and test cassette are direct binding screening testing devices for the presence of antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2 viruses in human serum, plasma and/or whole blood specimens. These HIV rapid tests are based on the principle of double antigen sandwich immunoassay. anti-HIV rapid test kits can be used for screening of blood donors or as an aid for the diagnosis of clinical conditions related to infection with HIV-1 and/or HIV-2. Our anti-HIV 1/2 antibody rapid serum test kit is CE2265 marked.
It is intended for professional use as an aid in diagnosis of HIV infections. This assay provides only a preliminary result, and all positive specimens should be confirmed with other qualified assays.
HIV-1 and HIV-2 Differentiation
Serological studies have determined that HIV-1 and HIV-2 have multiple common epitopes in core antigens but much less so in the envelope antigens. This clinical diagnostic issues related to HIV are the detection of antibodies to HIV1/2 in human plasma or serum by immunoassay.
HIV and AIDS
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a lentivirus that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV attacks the immune system, resulting in a chronic, progressive illness and leading to life-threatening opportunistic infections.
There are two types of HIV: HIV-1 and HIV-2. HIV-1 has been isolated from patients with AIDS and AIDS related complex, and from healthy persons with high potential risk of developing AIDS. Patients with HIV-2 are found primarily in parts of West Africa.
Treatment with anti-retrovirals increases the life expectancy of people infected with HIV.
