HIV Test (5th Gen)

About this test

HIV is a virus usually caught by having sex without a condom, although it can also be transferred through blood, breast milk or contaminated needles. The virus systematically weakens and destroys your body's ability to fight infection and illness. It is the main cause of AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome).

The latest 5th generation HIV blood test looks for specific HIV antibodies that are produced shortly after infection. By differentiating between HIV-1 and HIV-2 this test can determine whether the infection is recent, leading to faster treatment as well as containment (the risk of transmission is highest in the first 6 months when virus levels are highest). A P24 Antigen test is also carried out to reduce the risk of a false diagnosis.

Due to the sensitive nature and serious implications of a positive result, all tests are checked by a confirmatory test. This way you can sure of a highly accurate and reliable result.

Who is this test for?

This test is for anybody who is worried that he or she has been exposed to HIV and wish to get an early diagnosis and reduce the risk of transmission.
