Artron Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1/2 (HIV 1/2) Antibody Test

Catalog Number: A02-07-213 (strip) / A02-07-222 (cassette)


Artron One Step Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1/2 (HIV1/2) Antibody Test is a rapid and convenient immunochromatographic assay used for the qualitative detection of antibodies against HIV type 1 and type 2 in human serum, plasma, or blood samples. It is intended for professional use as an aid in the diagnosis of HIV infections. This assay provides only a preliminary result. Clinical expertise and professional judgment should be sought to further evaluate the result of the test


Artron One Step HIV 1/2 antibody test is an antibody-capture immunochromatographic assay, that detects the presence of HIV1/2 antibodies in blood samples. Specific HIV1/2 antigens, GP41 and GP 36, are 1) conjugated with colloidal gold and deposited on the conjugate pad and 2) immobilized on test zone (T) on the nitrocellulose membrane, respectively. When a serum/plasma sample is added, it rehydrates the gold-antigen conjugate, and the HIV1/2 antibodies, if any in samples, interact with the gold-conjugated antigen. The antigen-antibody-gold complex will migrate toward the test window until the test zone (T) where they are captured by immobilized antigen, forming a visible red line (Test band) indicating positive results. If HIV1/2 antibodies are absent in the sample, no red line will appear in the Test Zone (T).
To serve as an internal process control, a control line should always appear at Control Zone (C) after the test is completed. The absence of a colored control line in the Control Zone is an indication of an invalid result.


Time to Results:
10 min (Strong positive specimens may produce positive results in as little time as 1 minute. Confirm negatives in 10-20 minutes.)
Analytical Sensitivity:
Analytical Specificity:
No cross reactions were observed from all tested specimens
No interference from common biological and chemical analytes
Diagnostic Sensitivity:
99.8% (serum), 100% (plasma), 100% (blood)
Diagnostic Specificity:
99.57% (serum), 98.9% (plasma), 97.97% (blood)
99.74% (serum), 99.63% (plasma), 99.39% (blood)
The precision was determined by replicate assays of both positive and negative samples with devices from three different production lots. The resultant data indicated no appreciable between lot variation when testing both positive and negative samples across three different lots.
Storage condition:
Store at 2-30°C, avoid direct sunlight and freezing.
Shelf life:
36 months
