HIV Test Kit
iCARE One Step HIV 1 & 2 Whole Blood Test Cassette is a rapid one step test for detection of HIV 1 & 2 antibodies in human whole blood, serum or plasma at specified cut-off level.
There are two strains or types of HIV, the HIV-1, and HIV-2. HIV-1 is highly virulent and infectious. HIV-2 tends to be less virulent and infectious. Hence, fewer of those exposed to HIV-2 will be infected and this is the primary reason that HIV-2 is largely confined to West Africa. Our HIV Test Kit manufactured according to WHO standards and able to detect both HIV-1 and HIV-2.
One step HIV test cassette adopts double antigen sandwich method:
When the specimen is added into the test device, the specimen is absorbed into the device by capillary action, mixes with the antigen-dye conjugate, and flows across the pre-coated membrane.
When the HIV antibody levels are at or above the detection limit of the test, HIV antibodies in the specimen bind to the antigen-dye conjugate and are captured by antigen immobilized in the test region (T) of the device. This produces a colored test band and indicates a positive result.
When the HIV antibody levels are zero or below the detection limit of the test, there is not a visible colored band in the test region (T) of the device. This indicates a negative result.
To serve as a procedure control, a colored line will appear at the control region (C), if the test has been performed properly.
