How Our HIV Rapid Test Works

HIV Rapid Test | RapidTest.comPeople who believe that they may have contracted a dangerous disease live with the stress of not knowing until a test has been performed. The HIV Rapid Test from Diagnostic Automation / Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. is designed to give doctors the opportunity to present patients with test results as quickly as possible.

This test works by evaluating the blood of the patient. A specimen of whole blood, serum and plasma must be provided in order for the test to be accurately completed. This specimen is then tested for the presence of HIV antibodies. These antibodies bond with the gold conjugated antigens that are provided in the test kit.

If HIV antibodies are present in the specimen, a red line appears in the test zone to indicate that the individual has tested positive for HIV. The control zone must appear red every time the test is performed. This control indicator is used to increase the accuracy of the test.

An accuracy rate of 99 percent means that patients are able to learn results quickly to determine whether treatment is necessary. Medical professionals have the option to repeat the test in the case of a positive result to ensure that it is not a false positive. The test can also be repeated by a confirmatory test.

A Broad Overview of Rapid STD Testing | Infectious Disease rapid tests

Rapid STD Testing | RapidTest.comIn a world where sexually transmitted diseases are still an eminently serious problem, individuals who think they may be at risk will likely want to consult with a reputable testing facility as soon as possible. Infectious Disease Rapid tests can give men and women an immediate answer as to whether or not they are infected. While a more comprehensive test will be able to confirm the results, patients can begin taking prescriptive medication to ameliorate the symptoms of the disease before it progresses to the next stage.

A number of sexually transmitted diseases can be diagnosed with rapid testing, such as HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. The tests are designed to look for specific antibodies in the blood/Serum or plasma that are associated with the most common sexually transmitted diseases. Unlike bacteria cultures, which must be sent to a lab, rapid STD tests will provide a reasonably accurate answer within just a few minutes. Patients will receive their diagnosis at the clinic or the doctor’s office.

Rapid testing is eminently useful for physicians. If, for example, individuals test positive for HIV, a treatment plan can be immediately devised. While false negatives will still need to be ruled out, the benefits of this testing method far outweigh the drawbacks. Come to Diagnostic Automation / Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. to see the selection of rapid STD tests we have available.

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.

HIV ELISA KIT (ANTI-HIV 1+2 ELISA KIT) – CE APPROVED*

The HIV ELISA KIT ( Anti-HIV 1+2 ELISA Kit ) is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA kit) intended for qualitative detection of antibodies to Human Immunodeficiency Viruses (HIV) type 1(group M – O) or type 2 in human serum or plasma samples. This HIV ELISA Kit can be utilized for screening of blood donors and/or as an aid in the diagnosis of clinical conditions related to infection with HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 (the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome – AIDS).

 

Serological evidence of infection with HIV may be obtained by using this HIV ELISA Kit in order to test for presence of HIV antigens or antibodies in serum of individuals suspected for HIV infection.  Antigen can generally be detected from this HIV ELISA Kit during both acute phase and the symptomatic phase of AIDS only. The antibodies to (HIV-1) and/or (HIV-2) can be detected throughout virtually the whole infection period, starting at or shortly after the acute phase and lasting till the end stage of AIDS. Therefore, the use of highly sensitive antibody assays, like this HIV ELISA Kit, is the primary approach in serodiagnosis of HIV infection.  Apart from sexual transmission, the principal route of infection with HIV is blood transfusion.  HIV be can present both in cellular and cell-free fractions of human blood. Therefore, all donations of blood or plasma should be tested, using kits like these HIV ELISA Kits, due to the risk of HIV transmission through contaminated blood. This can be effectively achieved by testing for the antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2 by using a highly sensitive HIV ELISA Kit test like the ones offered by Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics. Inc.

 

HIV 1+2 ELISA is a two step incubation antigen “sandwich” enzyme immunoassay kit, (HIV ELISA Kit) which uses polystyrene microwell strips pre-coated with recombinant HIV antigens expressed in E.coli (recombinant HIV-1gp41, gp120, and recombinant HIV-2 gp-36). Patient’s serum or plasma sample from this HIV ELISA KIt, is added, and during the first incubation step, the specific HIV1/2 antibodies will be captured inside the wells if present. The microwells are then washed to remove unbound serum proteins.  A second set of recombinant antigens conjugated to the enzyme Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP-Conjugate) and expressing the same epitopes as the pre-coated antigens is added, and during the second incubation on this HIV ELISA Kit test, they will bind to the captured antibody. The microwells on the HIV ELISA KIt are washed to remove unbound conjugate, and chromogen solutions are added into the wells. In wells containing the antigen-antibody-antigen (HRP) “sandwich” immunocomplex, the colorless chromogens are hydrolyzed by the bound HRP conjugate to a blue colored product. The blue color on this HIV ELISA Kit test turns yellow after the reaction is stopped with sulfuric acid. The amount of color intensity can be measured and it is proportional to the amount of antibody captured in the wells of this HIV ELISA Kit test and to the sample respectively. Wells containing samples negative for anti-HIV 1/2 remain colorless on this HIV ELISA Kit test.

HIV ELISA KIT (HIV 1,2 Ag/Ab) ELISA Kit*

The HIV ELISA KIT –  HIV Ag &Ab is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for qualitative determination of antigens or antibodies to Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) type 1 and/or type 2 in human serum or plasma. The method is also known as 4th generation ELISA for HIV detection. This HIV ELILSA Kit is intended for screening of blood donors and as an aid for the diagnosis of clinical conditions related to infection with HIV-1and/or HIV-2 e.g. the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

 

The human immunodeficiency viruses type 1 and type 2 are the etiological agents of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and related conditions. HIV has been isolated from patients with AIDS, AIDS related complex (ARC) and from healthy individuals at high risk for AIDS. Infection with HIV is followed by an acute flu-like illness. This phase may remain unnoticed and the relationship to HIV infection may not be clear in many cases. The acute phase is typically followed by an asymptomatic carrier state, which progresses to clinical AIDS in about 50% of infected individuals within 10 years after seroconversion. Serological evidence of infection with HIV may be obtained by testing (using the HIV ELISA Kit) for presence of HIV antigens or antibodies in serum of individuals suspected for HIV infection.  Antigens can generally be detected on this HIV ELISA Kit test during both acute phase and the symptomatic phase of AIDS only. The Antibodies to HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 can be detected, using this HIV ELISA Kit, throughout virtually the whole infection period, starting at, or shortly after the acute phase and lasting till the end stage of AIDS.

HIV Rapid test

HIV Rapid test

HIV Rapid tests are qualitative immunoassays intended for use as a point-of-care test to aid in the diagnosis of HIV infection. This HIV Rapid Test is used in conjunction with the clinical status, history, and risk factors of the person being tested.

We offer the HIV Rapid Test.  This one-step Anti HIV 1, 2 RapidCard™ is a rapid, binding-screening test for the presence of antibodies to HIV 1 and HIV 2 viruses.  It is used as an aid in the diagnosis of HIV infection.  This HIV Rapid Test is based on the principle of inter-second antibody immunoassay for determination of antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2 in whole blood/serum/plasma.  Purified recombinant antigens are employed to identify anti-HIV 1 and HIV 2 specifically.  This one step test is very sensitive and only takes 20 minutes for the result to be read. Test results are read visually without any instrument.

 

It’s easy to use.  When you are ready to begin testing, open the sealed pouch of HIV Rapid Test by tearing along the notch. Using the plastic pipette provided, transfer 1 drop of whole blood/serum/plasma to the sample well of the test device. Add 3 drops of diluents provided onto the sample well. Wait for 20 minutes and read the results.

 

Interpretation is simple:  if only one colored band appears on the control (C) region and there is no apparent band on the test (T) region, the result is negative.  If a pink-colored band appears on control (C) and test (T) regions, the result is positive.  If there is no line on control (C) region, the result is considered invalid.

 

As with all diagnostic tests, all results must be considered with other clinical information available to the physician.  A definite clinical diagnosis should only be made by the physician after all clinical and laboratory findings have been evaluated.

 

The HIV Rapid Test should be used for the detection of antibodies to HIV in whole blood/serum/plasma specimen.

 

The HIV Rapid Test Device will only indicate the presence of antibodies to HIV in the specimen and should not be used as the sole criteria for the diagnosis of HIV-1 and/or -2 infections.

 

If the test result is negative and clinical symptoms persist, additional follow-up tests using other clinical methods are recommended. A negative result at any time does not preclude the possibility of HIV -1 and/or -2 infections.
