PRINCIPLE OF THE ASSAY
The Human immunodeficiency virus Antibody Test (HIV1/2) (Whole Blood/Serum/Plasma) is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay based on the principle of the double antigen–sandwich technique. The membrane is pre-coated with HIV 1/2 recombinant antigen on the test line region of the test. When testing positive specimen (whole blood, serum or plasma) , the anti-HIV antibody in the specimen reacts with the particle coated with anti-HIV antigen. The mixture migrates upward on the membrane chromatographically by capillary action to react with anti-HIV antigen on the membrane and generate a coloured line. The presence of this colored line in the test region indicates a positive result, while its absence indicates a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear in the control line region indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred..
Be careful when handling all samples, reagents, or devices used in the test as they may be the source of infection.
All reagents, human body samples, etc. are handled at the designated location.
