This HIV test is over 99.5% accurate after 4 weeks from exposure. It tests for HIV 1, HIV 2, and the p24 Antigen.
This test looks for the presence of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) 1 and 2 antibodies, and also for antibodies to a part of the virus particle known as p24. This virus protein is detectable in the blood before antibodies are made to the HIV particle, meaning it allows for earlier detection of HIV if present. Once established, the p24 antibodies diminish - so the p24 test a test for diagnosis, whereas HIV antibodies when present suggest an established infection with HIV.
This test is available as a finger prick or vacutainer sample collection option. You can also choose to visit a BMI Hospital or have a Nurse Home Visit. Select option at checkout.
