HIV and AIDS: Learn the Facts
It has been proven that acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is caused by viruses which are transmitted by sexual contact, blood transfusion, using contaminated blood products, and sharing contaminated needles. HIV-1 and 2 viruses, which may lead to AIDS, deplete T-helper cells in the body, leaving AIDS patients more susceptible to opportunistic infections and developing malignant tumors.
Patients with AIDS or those who are at risk of contracting the disease have a higher incidence of specific antibodies. The OraWell HIV-1&2 Antibody Saliva Rapid Screen Test was designed to detect these antibodies and identify any potential donors who are carrying these antibodies in their saliva.
OraWell At-Home HIV Test: How it Works
The OraWell HIV-1&2 Antibody Saliva Rapid Screen Test is a chromatographic immunoassay for the detection of antibodies to HIV-1&2 in human saliva. HIV-1&2 antibodies with binding protein are precoated onto membrane as capture reagents. During the testing, a specimen is allowed to react with the colloidal gold reagents which have been labeled with HIV- 1&2 specific antigens. If present in the saliva specimen, the antibodies will cause a pink-colored band to develop on the membrane in proportion to the amount of HIV-1&2 antibodies detected. A negative test result is indicated by an absence of this pink colored band in the test. As a procedural control, a pink-colored band will always appear in the control region of the test, regardless of the presence or absence of the antibodies.
