Rapid self-test for the qualitative detection of antibodies to human immunodeficiency virus 1 and 2 (HIV1/HIV2) in whole blood.

Human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV, is a pathogen that attacks and suppresses the immune system by specifically affecting white blood cells. Without specific treatment, the virus weakens the subject's immune system to the point of inducing the development of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS. It is a syndrome that can occur in people with HIV even several years after the infection, when the immune system's efficiency dramatically falls, and the body loses its ability to fight even the most common infections.

HIV 1/2 SELF-TEST can be performed by anyone who has been, or suspects to have been, exposed to the virus, people with HIV symptoms or anyone who wants to check a possible ongoing infection.

Draw a blood sample by using the sterile lancet provided.

Collect the sample indicated with the black line by using the capillary pipette provided.

Deposit the collected specimen into the vial, previously open, then screw it.

Add 3 drops of the obtained liquid into the sample well (S) indicated on the test cassette and wait 10 minutes before reading the result.

What happens if the results reading time is not met? The test has been carried out correctly when the instructions for use are followed. It includes the reading time and the interpretation of the results shown at the "RESULTS INTERPRETATION" section of the instructions for use.

How to prove that the test worked correctly? A coloured line will appear at the control region (C) on the test device, showing that the test performed correctly. The absence of the coloured line suggests to repeat the test with a new device and a new sample.

How to interpret the test if the control and test lines have different intensities? The colour and intensity of the lines do not affect the interpretation of the result. The test is to be considered positive regardless of the colour intensity of the test line (T).
