Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, with most of the disease concentrated in sub-Saharan Africa. As the infection often takes hold in adults who are in the prime of their economic productivity, HIV infection has dramatically altered the economies of many countries. HIV includes a diverse collection of viruses, including HIV type 1 (HIV-1) and HIV-2. HIV-1 is more prevalent and more pathogenic than HIV-2 and is responsible for the vast majority of the global pandemic.

Testing for HIV antibodies in infected individuals is critical to the diagnosis and control of HIV, and traditional blood tests place high demands on hospital environmental facilities and related medical staff, and there is also a risk of cross-infection.

 

1.HIV 1.2 Rapid Test (Urine)

Studies found that HIV antibody can be detected in urine. The collection of urine is easier, safer, and more cost-efficient, as the need for blood-drawing equipment is eliminated. Because of these advantages, especially the difficulties in collecting blood and the high cost of medical supplies, the use of urine for testing is attractive.

The HIV 1.2 Rapid Test (Urine) is a rapid test to qualitatively detect the presence of antibody to HIV 1 and/or HIV 2 in urine specimen.

 

2.HIV 1.2 Rapid Test (Oral Fluid)

Studies have shown that the saliva or oral mucosal exudate of HIV-infected people contains almost no HIV virus, but contains anti-HIV antibodies and has a high detection rate. Oral mucosal exudate is a mixture of saliva and gingival sulcus, which is mainly derived from serum and contains various immunoglobulins (mainly IgG antibodies) and other serum components transferred from serum, which can be used for various antibody tests.

The HIV 1.2 Rapid Test (Oral Fluid) is a rapid test to qualitatively detect the presence of antibody to HIV type 1 and type 2 in oral fluid. The test utilizes latex conjugate and anti-human IgG antibody to selectively detect antibodies to the HIV in oral fluid specimen.

 

Product Advantages

  • Ease of collection:Urine and oral fluid collection is simpler and more convenient compared to blood collection, making it easier for individuals to provide a sample.
  • Safety:The use of urine eliminates the need for blood-drawing equipment, reducing the risk of accidental needlestick injuries and potential exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
  • Cost-efficiency:Urine-based testing can be more cost-effective since it eliminates the need for specific blood collection supplies and associated disposal costs.
