This HIV DUO test helps detect HIV 1 and 2 antibodies and P24 antigen. The antibodies against HIV-1 and HIV-2 are usually not detectable until 6 to 12 weeks following exposure and are mostly detectable within 12 months. The P24 antigen is an indicator of HIV infection which can be detected earlier than tests that only look for HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) antibodies. HIV weakens a person’s immune system by destroying important cells that fight disease and infection. The main modes of HIV transmission include unprotected sex with a person who has HIV (anal or vaginal), sharing needles, syringes, from mother-to-baby during pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding, receiving blood transfusions, blood products, or organ/tissue transplants from infected person. The test is advised for people with symptoms like fever, chills, nausea, rash, night sweats, muscle aches, oral thrush, sore throat, fatigue, unintentional weight loss, swollen lymph nodes, and mouth ulcers. The person may be asymptomatic during the acute phase of infection.

Important Note: As per guidelines, the laboratory report of the test needs to be collected from the registered centre only. Details for the same will be shared once the test reports have been generated.

Needle is inserted into the vein of the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
