Test Description

The HIV rapid test is a screening test used to detect the presence of HIV 1&2  antibodies or antigens in the blood. It provides quick results, usually within 20 to 30 minutes, and is available in different forms, including self-tests that can be performed at home or in a private location.

Indications of the Test

The test is recommended for individuals who may have been exposed to HIV and want to quickly determine their HIV status. It is also used for routine screening, diagnosis, and monitoring of HIV infection.

Patient Preparation/Instructions

For a rapid antibody test, a small blood sample is usually obtained from a finger stick, or an oral fluid sample is collected. The test can also be performed using a self-test kit, which involves following the instructions to collect a sample and conduct the test. It is important to carefully read and follow the instructions provided with the test kit for accurate results.

Typical Reference Values

The test results are typically reported as non-reactive (negative) or reactive (positive). Additional confirmatory testing is required for reactive results.
