How the test works
Watch this short video to see how the BioSURE HIV test works.
HIV and HIV antibodies
Knowing whether you are infected with HIV as early as possible is vital for your own and your partners health.
It is estimated that over 100,000 people are living with HIV in the UK but a quarter of these have not been diagnosed and unaware that they are infected. This group accounts for two thirds of all HIV transmission in England. Four out of ten people are diagnosed later than when treatment should have started and are at greater risk of avoidable illness.
How accurate is the test?
The technology is very similar to a home pregnancy test kit.
The test detects infection with both HIV 1 and HIV 2 providing reliable results with a sensitivity of 99.7% and a specificity of 99.9%.
IMPORTANT: You must wait 3 months after exposure before using this test which allows time for your body to start developing detectable levels of antibodies. People produce antibodies to HIV at different rates and it is possible that a negative result may not be accurate if the test is taken earlier than 3 months after exposure.
If you think that you may have recently been exposed to HIV you should visit a specialist HIV clinic or A&E department as soon as possible as they have access to tests that can detect the virus earlier or consider our private laboratory service instead, which detects the HIV p24 antigen as well as the HIV antibodies (the BioSURE test does not detect p24 antigen).
Each test kit is dispatched in secure, plain packaging which is designed to fit through a standard size letter box. Most customers who order before 2pm on a normal weekday receive their test kit the next day.
Further information about the launch of the test in April 2015 can be found on the BBC website.
