Biogenix HIV 1&2 Rapid Test is a lateral flow immunoassay for the simultaneous detection and differentiation of HIV-1 and HIV-2 antibodies (IgG, IgM, IgA) in human serum and plasma. It is intended to be used as a screening test and as an aid in the diagnosis of infection with HIV.
Biogenix HIV 1 &2 Rapid Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay. The test cassette consists of: 1) a burgundy colored conjugate pad containing recombinant HIV-1 antigens(gp41+120,p24)conjugated with colloidal gold (HIV-1 conjugates), recombinant HIV-2 antigen(gp36)conjugated with colloidal gold (HIV-2 conjugates) and a control antibody (rabbit igG)conjugated with colloidal gold, 2) a nitrocellulose membrane strip containing two test lines (1 and 2) and a control line (C). Test line 1 is pre-coated with HIV-1 antigen for the detection of antibodies to HIV-1, test line 2 is pre-coated with HIV-2 antigen for the detection of antibodies to HIV-2, and the C line is pre-coated with a control line (anti-rabbit IgG) antibody.
