Introduction

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is recognized as the etiologic agent of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The virus is transmitted by sexual contact, exposure to infected blood, certain body fluids or tissues, and from mother to fetus or child during the perinatal period.
The First Response® HIV 1-2.O Card Test is an immunochromatographic (rapid) qualitative test for the detection of antibodies of all classes specific to HIV-1 gp41, p24, including Group O and HIV-2 gp36 in human serum, plasma or whole blood.

First Response® HIV 1-2.0 Card test

First Response® HIV 1-2.O Card Test is intended for use in vitro diagnostic test for detection of antibodies of all classes specific to HIV-1 (including Group O) and HIV-2 in human serum, plasma or whole blood.
First Response® HIV 1-2.O Card Test is based on the principle of immune-chromatography in which nitrocellulose membrane is pre-coated with recombinant HIV-1 capture antigens (gp41 including Group O and p24) on test band “1” region and with recombinant HIV-2 capture antigen (gp36) on test band “2” region. This conjugated antigen-antibody complex moves through the nitrocellulose membrane and binds to the corresponding immobilised HIV 1 antigens and
HIV 2 antigen (Test Lines) leading to the formation of a colour visible line as the capture antigen-antibody conjugated antigen complex, indicating reactive results.


Advantages:

  • Specifically designed for whole blood, as well as serum and plasm

  • 100% sensitivity and 100% specificity

  • Detects antibodies gp41, p24, gp36

  • Helping in giving treatment for HIV 1 and HIV 2

  • Does not require cold chain and storage temp is 4°C - 30°C


First Response® HIV 1-2.O Card Test has been tested using an in-house panel of Positive and Negative clinical samples confirmed by a leading commercial anti-HIV 1&2 ELISA kit. The result shows that First Response® HIV 1-2.O Card Test is very accurate compared to other commercial ELISA kit. In a comparison of the First Response® HIV 1-2.O Card Test versus a leading commercial anti-HIV 1 & 2 ELISA and Rapid test, results gave a sensitivity of 100%, a specificity of 100% and a total agreement of 100%.
