Intended Use and Biological Principle

The iCare Advanced Anti-HIV (1&2) Rapid Saliva Test utilizes immunochromatographic technology to detect the presence of antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2. The test device includes a conjugate pad with HIV-1 and HIV-2 recombinant antigen-colloidal gold and a nitrocellulose membrane with immobilized antigens in the test area and goat-anti-rabbit IgG antibody in the control area. When a saliva sample is applied, it migrates through the test device by capillary action. If HIV antibodies are present, they bind to the antigens, forming a visible line in the test area, indicating a positive result. A control line appears to confirm the validity of the test process, ensuring accurate and reliable results.

Comprehensive Test Kit and Usage Instructions

The test kit is comprehensive, containing all necessary components for conducting the test, except for a timing device. Users are advised to follow the detailed instructions for specimen collection, test preparation, and result interpretation to ensure accuracy. Key precautions include not eating, drinking, or smoking before the test, using the kit only once, and following proper disposal protocols. The test should be stored at room temperature, and the foil pouch should be opened only when ready to use. By adhering to these guidelines, users can achieve reliable and consistent results.
