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.

HIV Test strip and Cassette

One-step anti-HIV Rapid Test

CE2265 markOne 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.

Specimen

Serum Collection

Collect blood specimen into a red top blood collection tube by vein puncture, which contains no anticoagulants.

Allow the blood to clot, or separate the serum by centrifugation.

Carefully withdraw the serum into a new pre-labeled tube.

serum Storage Condition

Test specimens as soon as possible after collecting. The specimens can be stored up to 5 days at 2-8°C if not tested immediately. The specimens should be frozen at -20°C for longer time storage. Don’t freeze and thaw the specimens for many times. Prior to testing, bring frozen specimens to room temperature slowly and mix gently. Specimens containing visible particulate matter should be clarified by centrifugation before testing. Do not use samples demonstrating gross lipemia, gross hemolysis or turbidity in order to avoid interference on result interpretation.

Testing Principle of Lateral Flow Double Antigen Sandwich

GICA Double Antigen Sandwich Method Illustration

Double antigen sandwich technology is commonly used to detect total antibody, which include IgM, IgG and IgA antibodies, which all can react and bound to specific antigen. In the lateral flow double antigen sandwich chromatographic rapid test, recombinant or purified antigens are used to capture and detect the total antibodies specifically.

In the test band region, purified or recombinant antigens or proteins are immobilized. In the end of the membrane strip where the samples are supposed to be added, another antigen conjugated with colloidal gold particles is embedded.

During the testing process, specimen from the patient is added to the end of the membrane strip. The antigen conjugate particles resolve into the specimen, where the antigen conjugate will react and bound to the target antibodies, if present.

This antibody-antigen conjugate complex then moves along the strip to the testing band region, under capillary effect. Where the immobilized antigen captures the complex, and the antigen-antibody-antigen-colloidal gold complex is fixed on test band region. When the complex congregates, the highly concentrated colloidal gold particles will develop some red or pink color, indicate a positive result.

If there is no target antibody in the specimen, the colloidal gold particles will not congregate on the test band region, and no color will develop, indicating a negative result.
