The HIV 1/2 Rapid Test is a rapid immunochromatography assay for the qualitative detection of antibodies to HIV 1/2 virus in human serum, plasma and whole blood.
The sealed pouches in the test kit and the sample running buffer may be stored between 4°C to 30°C for the duration of the shelf life as indicated on the pouch and the viaI. After first opening of the sample running buffer vial, the buffer is stable until the expiration date, if kept at 4°C to 30°C. Do not freeze the kit or components.
Repeatability and reproducibility (inter-assay and inter-lot) were evaluated on a number of negative and positive HIV samples.
No variations were found in the outcome of the different tests.
