RAPID RESULTS – HIV RAPID TEST 


Los Angeles-based Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc., a leading manufacturer and distributor of drug testing products worldwide, is pleased to offer a top of the line HIV Rapid Test.  This HIV Rapid Test, a OneStep HIV 1+2 Rapid Test (cassette format) is a direct binding screening test for the presence of antibodies of HIV 1 and 2 viruses.  The HIV Rapid Test is based on the principle of double sandwich immunoassay for the determination of anti-HIV-1 and anti-HIV-2 in serum/plasma.  Recombinant HIV antigens are employed to specifically identity anti-HIV antibodies on the HIV Rapid Test.  This HIV Rapid Test is for in vitro diagnostic use only.  The HIV Rapid Test comes in cassette (RapiCard) format.*

 

ADVANTAGES OF HIV RAPID TEST

 

Experts agree that using tests like the HIV Rapid Test is an essential part of stopping the spread of HIV.  The HIV Rapid Test provides the quick results that most patients desire. The standard screening test for HIV is an HIV ELISA test.   This HIV ELISA test requires a small sample of blood from the patient, but typically requires two visits.  Studies have shown that those being screened for HIV testing where the blood is sent to an outside laboratory, do not return for follow-up visits.  This gap in HIV Rapid test and treatment time is dangerous when dealing with rapid transmission of such an infectious disease to others.  Unlike the HIV ELISA test, an HIV Rapid Test provides results during a single counseling session.  Thus, the HIV Rapid Test allows the patient to get pre & post-test counseling, HIV Rapid Test results, and any medical referrals they may need – all in one visit and in a very short amount of time.  Early diagnosis of the HIV virus by using the quick and simple HIV Rapid Test can help identify patients who may be candidates for anti-retroviral treatment, which has been shown to delay the progression of the infection to full blown AIDS.  This type of Rapid HIV Testing benefits not only the individual, but the health of the community, by reducing the risk of spreading an infectious disease.  The HIV Rapid Test can be useful to quickly confirm HIV status in the community which then enables health professionals to effectively identify and establish appropriate HIV prevention services.

 

FEATURES OF HIV RAPID TEST

 

Users of the HIV Rapid Test know that HIV is a serious virus infection.  When a person has an HIV infection, it means the T-cells in the body are being attacked.  Known officially as “human immunodeficiency virus,” the HIV symptoms are not always known, depending on the phase of infection.  However, the majority of infected HIV patients develop a flu-like illness within a month or two after the virus enters the body.  An HIV Rapid Test is important at any stage since the HIV virus, once in the bloodstream, continues to multiply and destroy cells.  If no testing occurs, as that in an HIV Rapid Test, then the virus can develop into AIDS.  If an infection is suspected, an individual should seek medical advice as soon as possible.  Using the HIV Rapid Test allows an infected individual to receive immediate treatment helping to prevent further spread of the HIV virus to others.

 

Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc.’s HIV Rapid Test can be run on serum and plasma samplesThe HIV Rapid Test works best on fresh samples.  For serum testing on the HIV Rapid Test, collect blood into a container without anticoagulant.  Allow the blood to clot and separate the serum from the clot.  Use the serum for the HIV Rapid Test.  For plasma sample testing using the HIV Rapid Test, separate the plasma from the blood using centrifugation.  If the specimen cannot be tested using the HIV Rapid Test on the day of collection, store the specimen in a refrigerator (at 2 to 4 degrees celsius) for up to 3 days.  Make sure to stir and bring the specimen to room temperature before using the HIV Rapid Test.  Do not freeze and thaw the specimen repeatedly before using the HIV Rapid Test.  Results from the HIV Rapid Test can be obtained within 20-30 minutes of using the HIV Rapid Test.  If the HIV Rapid Test result is negative, only one colored band appears on the control C region of the HIV Rapid Test.  If the HIV Rapid Test is positive, a pink color will appear not only on the C band of the HIV Rapid Test, but also a distinct pink colored band will appear in the test (T) region of the HIV Rapid Test.

ROTAVIRUS RAPID TEST | ADENOVIRUS/ROTAVIRUS RAPID TEST | ROTAVIRUS ELISA TEST

ROTAVIRUS RAPID TEST

 

TESTING WITH THE ROTAVIRUS RAPID TEST

Rotavirus Rapid Tests are familiar rapid tests to most health clinics worldwide.  Why?  The answer lies in the fact that the rotavirus infection has been “the most common cause” of gastrointestinal problems, such as acute diarrhea, among infants and young children throughout the world.  Statistics have shown that on a global scale, nearly every child has at some point been infected with the rotavirus infection.  The Rotavirus Rapid Tests are intended to aid in the diagnosis of rotavirus infection and to monitor the effectiveness of therapeutic treatment of the rotavirus infection.   The name rotavirus comes from the wheel-like appearance of the virus when viewed by electron microscopy.  Children between the ages of 6 and 24 months are at greatest risk for developing severe infections from different strains of the rotavirus and thus prime candidates for testing using the Rotavirus rapid test.   Adults sometimes become infected, but the resulting illness is usually mild. Still, for both children and adults, many top health officials have endorsed the easy-to-use and convenient Rotavirus Rapid Test as a superior aid in treating rotavirus infections.  To prevent high hospital costs and annual economic strains on families worldwide, Rotavirus Rapid Tests are invaluable tools in keeping these costs down.  Early detection of the rotavirus infection, through use of a Rotavirus Rapid Test, has been the most effective instrument in controlling the spread of rotavirus infection.

 

NOTABLE FEATURES OF THE ROTAVIRUS RAPID TEST

A leader worldwide in manufacturing and supplying medical testing equipment, Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. offers a one-step Rotavirus Antigen Rapid Test (in cassette format) that is an in-vitro quantitative immunocromatographic assay for the rapid detection of rotavirus antigens in human stool specimen.  Simple to use and inexpensive, the Rotavirus Rapid Test is an accurate and rapid qualitative method for the detection of rotavirus in stool specimens of symptomatic patients.  The Rotavirus Rapid Test has shown 98% sensitivity and 97% specificity in rapid diagnosis and treatment of infection in patients.  The Rotavirus Rapid Test supplies quick and easy-to-read results, usually within 30 minutes.  Each Rotavirus Rapid Test cassette contains a test strip with rotavirus specific antibody on the Rotavirus rapid test region of the membrane and colored rotavirus antibody-gold conjugate pad.  If the stool specimen sample on the Rotavirus rapid test contains rotavirus antigens, the antigen will bind to the antibody coated on the strip.  The One Step Rotavirus Rapid Test, a sandwich solid phase immunochromatographic assay, will then show a red control line in Rotavirus rapid test window to indicate that the Rotavirus Rapid Test functioned properly.  If the Rotavirus antigen is not present, or lower than detection limit of the Rotavirus Rapid Test, only the control line will be visible.

TOP QUALITY ONE-STEP ROTAVIRUS RAPID TEST 

Labeled as the OneStep Rotavirus Antigen RapiCardTM InstaTest, Diagnostic Automation’s Rotavirus Rapid Test is simple, specific, rapid, and cost effective.  Medical tests conducted on the efficiency of the Rotavirus Rapid Test have shown that the Rotavirus Rapid Test is equally as accurate as the Rotavirus ELISA test available on the market today.  The test results revealed that the Rotavirus Rapid Test was just as sensitive as the direct electron microscopy of the Rotavirus ELISA test.  Studies concluded that the Rotavirus Rapid Test is an accurate and rapid qualitative method for the detection of rotavirus in stools of symptomatic children and adults.  Early and reliable detection, by using such tests as the Rotavirus Rapid Test, is very important to populations around the world in order to avoid further rotavirus infections within their communities.
