How does the BioSURE HIV Self Test work?
The technology is very similar to a human pregnancy test but detects specific antibodies to HIV in a blood sample. When the body detects something harmful (like a bacteria or a virus), the immune system starts to produce antibodies to try and defend the body. Each type of antibody is unique, and each individual makes them at different rates.
How accurate is the BioSURE HIV Self Test?
It is proven to be extremely effective at diagnosing HIV. Extensive research has evidenced this kit to be exceptionally usable and tremendously accurate when performed correctly.
It has a proven clinical sensitivity (if a person has HIV how often the test will be positive) of 99.7%, this means that on average 997 in every 1,000 positive results will be correct.
It has a proven clinical specificity (if a person doesn’t have HIV how often will the test be negative) of 99.9%, this means that on average 999 in every 1,000 negative results will be correct.
About the HIV testing window
4 weeks after exposure about 50% of people have made the antibodies for HIV. By 6 weeks after exposure, this goes up to about 95%, however, some people don’t make these antibodies until up to 12 weeks after infection. It’s important to ensure that test users do not rely on a negative test result until 3 months after their most recent possible exposure.
