for Rapid HIV Test Kits 1test/Pouch 1test/Box or 4
rapid hiv test kits
The one step HIV test is a rapid test based on the principle of immunoassay combined with conjugated colloid gold technology.The HIV test (Serum/Plasma) is a diagnostic device to detect the presence of the anti-HIV in whole blood.
The test kit can be stored at temperatures from 4°C to 30°c in the sealed pouch up to date ofexpiration.The test kit should be kept away from direct sunlight and moisture.Do not freeze the test kit.
♣ Specimen Collection:
Blood should be collected aseptically into a clean tube without anticoagulants.Separate the serum or plasma from blood as soon as possible to avoid hemolysis.Use clear non-hemolyzed specimens when possible.
1. Allow the test kit,specimen,and/or controls to equilibrate to room temperature(15-30°C) prior to testing.
2. Remove the test kit from the foil pouch and use it as soon as possible.Best results will be obtained if the assay is performed within one hour.
3. Place the test device on a clean and level surface.Transfer the specimen by a disposable specimen dropper(or a pipette):To use a hold the dropper vertically,draw the specimen up to the fill line as shown in illustration below(approximately 40uL). Transfer the specimen to the specimen well(S) of the test device and start the timer.Aviod trapping air bubbles in the specimen well (S).
4. Wait for the red line(s) to appear.The result should be read at 15 minutes.Do not interpret the results after 20 minutes.
In addition to a pink colored control (C) band,a Distinct pink colored band will also appear in the test (T) region.
*Note (Weak Positive): Colored band appearing in control Region (C) together with a faint colored band in Test Region (T).
Only one colored band appears on the control (C) region.No apparent band on the test (T) region.
A total absence of color in both regions is an indication of procedure error and/or the test reagent has deteriorated.
