Questions About Lateral Flow Tests For HIV

What is Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)?

HIV is a virus that attacks the body’s immune system, making it hard to fight off other infections and diseases. If left untreated, HIV can lead to AIDS, which stands for Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome and is the most advanced stage of the infection. 

What is the rapid HIV lateral flow test?

The rapid HIV self-test is a simple and accurate at-home test that can detect antibodies to HIV in just 10 minutes, using a small sample of blood from the finger. The test comes with detailed instructions for use, and the results are available quickly, allowing you to get peace of mind about your HIV status in a fast and reliable manner. 

How accurate is the rapid HIV lateral flow test?

The rapid HIV self-test is extremely accurate scoring an overall accuracy of 99.6%. Furthermore, it has a sensitivity of 99.3% (a measure of how well the test can identify a true positive) and a specificity of 99.7% (how well the test can identify a true negative). 

What type of sample is required for the rapid HIV lateral flow test?

This self-test requires a whole blood sample that is collected from the tip of the finger by a sterile lancet that is used to make a small, controlled incision. The blood sample is placed on the test device with a couple of drops of the diluent added and then tested to see if there are any antibodies specific to the HIV infection present in the blood sample. If there are, this will give a positive reading and indicates the presence of the HIV infection in the body. 

How long must I wait to obtain results from the HIV lateral flow test?

The results of this self-test typically take around 10 minutes to obtain. 

How soon after potential exposure can the rapid HIV self-test be taken?

It is recommended to wait anywhere between 23 – 90 days (window period) before taking the rapid HIV self-test. It typically requires this window period after being infected with HIV for the body to produce enough antibodies to effectively be detected by the self-test, providing more accurate results. 

Are there any risks associated with taking the rapid HIV lateral flow test?

No. There are no known risks associated with taking the rapid HIV self-test. It is a simple, safe, and reliable way to test for HIV in the comfort and privacy of your own home. 

Who should take the rapid HIV lateral flow test?

Anyone who suspects they may have been infected with the virus, uses injection drugs, has more than one sexual partner at any one time, or those who engage in high risk behaviours, should test regularly for HIV, to prevent the spread of this infection and to prevent more serious diseases like AIDS.

What does a positive result mean?

If the test produces a positive result (2 lines on the testing device) this means that antibodies to the virus were detected in your blood, meaning you are likely to have HIV. It is important to immediately visit your GP or hour nearest sexual health clinic for further testing and to discuss next steps.
