The HIV 1 & 2 Rapid Human Immunodeficiency Virus Test (Serum/Plasma) is a rapid immunoassay for the qualitative detection of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) type-1 and/or type-2 in human serum or plasma.
Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a chronic, potentially life-threatening condition caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) (1,2). HIV virus belongs to the family Retroviridae Genus Lentivirus which is a single stranded RNA virus but after the infection of target cell, the viral RNA genome is converted (reverse transcribed) into double-stranded DNA by a virally encoded enzyme, reverse transcriptase (3). Human immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is transmitted by both sexually transmitted infection (transfer of blood, pre-ejaculate, semen, and vaginal fluids) and non-sexually (infected mother to her infant during pregnancy, during childbirth by exposure to her blood or vaginal fluid, and through breast milk). According to the World Health Organization (WHO) Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and AlDS related complex is a major global public health issue, having claimed 36.3 million lives so far. There is no cure for HIV infection. However, with increasing access to effective HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care, including for opportunistic infections, HIV infection has become a manageable chronic health condition, enabling people living with HIV to lead long and healthy lives (4). An accurate diagnosis of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and AlDS related complex (ARC) caused by the HIV Virus by The Simple HIV 1&2 allows for the rapid, qualitative detection of a HIV 1&2 antigens directly from fingerstick whole blood, venipuncture whole blood and plasma specimens.
