Uni-Gold Recombigen HIV Rapid Test – Educational/Training Demonstration

The Uni-Gold™ Recombigen® HIV-1/2 rapid test was designed as a rapid immunoassay and is intended to detect antibodies to HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 in human serum, plasma and whole blood (venipuncture and fingerstick).
Trinity Biotech - Uni-Gold Recombigen HIV
Uni-Gold™ Recombigen® HIV-1/2 uses proteins representing regions of the HIV virus. If antibodies to HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 are present in the sample, they combine with these proteins and a color reagent and this complex binds to the proteins in the test forming a visible pink/red band in the test region of the device adjacent to the word ‘Test’.
Visual Interpretation of Test Results: The control line should always appear as a visible pink/red band in the control region of the device to  indicate that the test device is functioning correctly. A reactive result is indicated by a pink/red band in the test region of the device. A non-reactive result occurs in the absence of detectable levels of antibodies to HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 in the specimen; consequently no visually detectable band develops in the test region of the device.
