The first FDA approved rapid point-of-care test that detects both HIV-1/2 antibodies and free HIV-1 p24 antigen. This antigen/antibody test (4th generation) has the ability to identify HIV earlier than antibody-only tests (2nd and 3rd generation).1 It enables health care providers to diagnose HIV infection earlier allowing individuals to seek medical care sooner.
Only available in the US.
