HIV AIDS

Detect Promptly. Detect Accurately.

Prompt, accurate detection may improve patient outcomes when it comes to HIV diagnosis.

The Need for Diagnosis

Lack of diagnosis often leads to a lack of treatment. When individuals with HIV don’t get treatment, they typically progress through three stages of HIV, ending in AIDS.1

What is HIV?

HIV, which stands for human immunodeficiency virus, is a virus that attacks the immune system, increasing the risk of severe infections. There are two main strains of HIV – HIV-1 and HIV-2 – the former being most common, most likely to progress and worsen, and typically presents a high plasma viral load in individuals. If HIV-1 or HIV-2 is left untreated, they can lead to AIDS, also known as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Though there is currently no cure for HIV, treatment can slow the infection and disease progression.4

Access HIV Combo V2 Assay

It's important to utilize diagnostic methods that detect infection starting at the early stages (primary infection, asymptomatic stage, AIDS), regardless of whether it has been induced by HIV-1 or HIV-2. Fill out the form below to learn how the Access HIV combo V2 is a semiquantitative assay that allows detection of HIV-1 and HIV-2 antigens and antibodies.
