HIV AIDS Rapid Test Cassettes
HIV 1/2 Test – AIDS screening Test Device
HIV AIDS rapid test kits, also called one-step HIV tests, are direct binding screening testing devices for the presence of antibodies to HIV 1 and HIV 2 viruses. HIV rapid tests are based on the principle of double antigen sandwich immunoassay principle for the detection of Anti-HIV in human serum, plasma or whole blood specimens. Purified recombinant antigens are employed to identify HIV antibodies specifically. Rapid HIV tests are very sensitive and only takes about 10-15 minutes to get the preliminary results.
At present, JP BIOGEN DIAGNOSTICS LTD is supplying three kinds of AIDS screening test devices, namely HIV 1+2 serum test, HIV 1+2 Whole blood test, and HIV Tri-Line test. While all of them can detect HIV 1 and HIV 2 with a single test cassette, the HIV three line test kits can detect HIV antibodies of all isotypes (IgG. IgM, IgA) specific to HIV-1 and HIV-2 simultaneously, and by showing the testing result through two different lines (indicated on the testing cassette by the number 1 and 2). So the HIV tri-line test cassette not only shows positive or negative result, it also show whether the infection is HIV1 or HIV2.
HIV 1/2 Rapid Serum, plasma and Whole Blood Test Cassettes
HIV is an acronym of human immunodeficiency virus, which is a retrovirus that causes AIDS, a highly fatal disease that can be transfered through many ways such as blood transfusion. At the beginning, AIDS known to be an sexually transmitted disease (STD), or so called social diseases. In this regard, AIDS rapid diagnostic test kits are also refered to as STD rapid test or social diseases test. And because HIV was formerly known as HTLV-III, the test devices is still being refered to as HTLV-III test kits.
* HIV testing cassettes are easy to perform;
* Qualitative results are read visually without any instrument;
* No other reagent is needed for HIV testing devices;
* HIV tri-line cassettes indicate HIV1 and HIV2 infection seperately;
* HIV immunoassay is appropriate to test the source patient after exposure .
