Explore HYSEN's HIV Ag/Ab Combo Rapid Test Cassette, an innovative tool built around the technology of Rapid Chromatographic Immunoassay. This groundbreaking product has been engineered to detect HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), the causative agent of AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), quickly and accurately. This state-of-the-art Rapid Chromatographic Immunoassay is a milestone development in the field of medical diagnostics. It stands head and shoulders above other testing methods, due to its speed, precision and reliability. While the HIV virus has been a significant global health concern for decades, HYSEN's HIV Ag/Ab Combo Rapid Test Cassette brings a glimmer of hope by enabling earlier and accurate diagnosis, thereby facilitating timely medical intervention. At its core, this product leverages the advanced science of Rapid Chromatographic Immunoassay, enabling the detection of HIV's antigen and antibodies simultaneously. This dual-detection feature significantly enhances the test's efficiency and effectiveness, raising the standard in HIV diagnostic procedures.

SUMMARY

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is the etiologic agent of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The virion is surrounded by a lipid envelope that is derived from the host cell membrane. Several viral glycoproteins are on the envelope. During HIV infection, the p24 antigen is produced during the first few weeks and is detectable 7-9 days earlier than the appearance of HIV antibodies. As a result, the p24 antigen is an ideal marker in aiding early HIV diagnosis. Each virus contains two copies of positive-sense genomic RNAs. HIV-1 has been isolated from patients with AIDS and AIDS-related complex, and from healthy people with high potential risk for developing AIDS.HIV-1 consists of Subtype M and Subtype O. Highly divergent strains of HIV-1 were first recognized in 1990 and grouped provisionally as Subtype O as this variation has similar glycoprotein markers to HIV-1 but a slight variation to the protein marker. Although rarely compared to HIV-1 and HIV-2, infections caused by Subtype O have so far been identified in Africa (Cameroon), France and Germany. HIV-2 has been isolated from West African AIDS patients and from seropositive asymptomatic individuals.HIV-1, HIV-2, and Subtype O all elicit immune responses.Detection of HIV antibodies in serum, plasma or whole blood is the most efficient and common way to determine whether an individual has been exposed to HIV and to screen blood and blood products for HIV.Despite the differences in their biological characters, serological activities and genome sequences, HIV-1, HIV-2, and Subtype O show strong antigenic cross reactivity.The HIV Ag/Ab Combo Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a rapid test to qualitatively detect the presence of antibodies to HIV type 1, type 2, and/or Subtype O and antigens to HIV P24 in whole blood, serum or plasma specimen.

PRINCIPLE

The HIV Ag/Ab Combo Rapid Test Cassette (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a qualitative, membrane based immunoassay for the detection of antibodies to HIV-1, HIV-2, Subtype O and antigens to HIV P24 in whole blood, serum or plasma. The membrane is pre-coated with recombinant HIV antigens in the test line regions T1. The T1 test line is pre-coated with HIV- 1, HIV-2 and Subtype O antigen. The membrane is pre-coated with recombinant HIV antibodies in the test line regions T2. The T2 test line is pre-coated with HIV P24 antibodies. During testing, the whole blood, serum or plasma specimen reacts with HIV antigen and/or antibodies coated particles in the test strip. The mixture then migrates upward on the membrane chromatographically by capillary action and reacts with recombinant HIV antigen and/or on the membrane in the test line region. If the specimen contains antibodies to HIV-1 and/or Subtype O and/or HIV-2, one colored line will appear in the test line region; if the specimen contains antibodies to HIV-1 and/or Subtype O and/or HIV-2 and antigens to HIV P24, two colored lines will appear in the test line region. Both indicate a positive result. If the specimen does not contain HIV-1, Subtype O, HIV-2 antibodies and/or HIV P24 antigens, no colored line will appear in the test line region indicating a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.

STORAGE AND STABILITY

The kit can be stored at room temperature or refrigerated (2-30°C). The test cassette is stable through the expiration date printed on the sealed pouch. The test cassette must remain in the sealed pouch until use. DO NOT FREEZE. Do not use beyond the expiration date.



Furthermore, this rapid chromatographic immunoassay's merits extend beyond speed and accuracy. It also brings simplicity and convenience to the testing process. With no need for extensive laboratory procedures or long waiting periods, HIV testing becomes more accessible and practical, contributing significantly to global healthcare improvement. In summary, HYSEN's HIV Ag/Ab Combo Rapid Test Cassette, empowered by Rapid Chromatographic Immunoassay, is not just a product — it's a solution. It's a beacon of hope for individuals and healthcare professionals working tirelessly to combat HIV. This product's speed, precision, and simplicity make it an invaluable tool in our fight against a global health crisis. With this, we hope to usher in a new era of rapid, reliable, and accessible HIV testing.
