HIV 1.2 Rapid Test


Product Number: RAPG-HIV-101

Pack size

20 tests

Product Description

The Biopanda HIV 1.2 Rapid Test qualitatively detects antibodies to HIV type 1 and type 2 in whole blood, serum, or plasma. This test applies lateral flow immuno-chromatography and is a tool to assist in the diagnosis of HIV infection.

Test Attributes

  • Whole blood, serum, or plasma may be used for testing
  • Results available in only 10 minutes
  • Easy to use
  • Results can be read visually
  • No need for an analyser
  • Cost effective method for assisting to diagnose HIV infections

Test Procedure

  1. Ensure specimen and test kits are brought to room temperature before testing. Ensure the blood specimen is mixed well.
  2. Open the foil wrapped pouch and remove the cassette, placing it on a flat, clean surface. Use the test as soon as possible or within one hour of opening.
  3. Add the sample to the specimen well on the cassette:
    1. For venipuncture/finger prick whole blood specimens: Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 2 drops of the whole blood (approximately 50 µl) to the specimen well on the cassette followed immediately by 2 drops of buffer (approximately 80 µl).
    2. For serum or plasma samples: Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 1 drop of the sample (approx. 25 µl) to the specimen well on the cassette followed immediately by 1 drop of buffer (approx 40 µl).
  4. Read the results at 10 minutes once the coloured line(s) have appeared. Results read after 20 minutes are considered invalid.

Principle

The Biopanda HIV 1.2 Rapid Test Cassette is a qualitative, membrane based immunoassay for the detection of antibodies to HIV 1.2 in whole blood, serum or plasma. The membrane is pre-coated with recombinant HIV antigens. During testing, the whole blood, serum or plasma specimen reacts with HIV antigen coated particles in the test Cassette. The mixture then migrates upward on the membrane chromatographically by capillary action and reacts with recombinant HIV antigen on the membrane in the test line region. If the specimen contains antibodies to HIV 1 and/or HIV 2, a coloured line will appear in the test line region, indicating a positive result. If the specimen does not contain HIV 1 and/or HIV 2 antibodies, a coloured line will not appear in the test line region, indicating a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a coloured line will always appear in the control line region, indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
