On European HIV- Hepatitis Testing Week we find out about a new self testing kit for HIV


THE Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a retrovirus that as of yet has no cure.  As the medical community has continued to develop a vaccine against it and also a cure, sadly the virus is still spreading. Currently there are 4 main types of HIV test with  the most accurate being blood tests, looking for antibodies that your body makes against HIV. Up to now it has meant a sample of blood having to be taken in a clinic and sent for testing in a laboratory, but not anymore.  Jennifer Brown, from bioLytical? Laboratories Inc. very kindly took the time to have a phone interview with us about the new test they have developed.  They have produced a revolutionary test can be done by you, at home, for rapid testing!  For more information visit bioLytical's website.

What do you think about this test?  Do you like the idea or do you think it will put people off going and getting tested for other STI's as well as HIV?  Please let us know via emailing us to:-  Also to read about our Editors experience at getting tested, when we looked at STI testing back in 2012, click on here.
