Self-administered tests have grown in popularity as medical technology that increases their accuracy has been developed. Prestigious medical bodies such as the FDA and the NHS have recently approved HIV self-test kits, allowing people to diagnose this condition without consulting a doctor.

One of the most important issues with traditional HIV tests is that many people refuse to contact their doctor, usually for privacy reasons. The spread of self-test kits is important in that it contributes to reduced rates of undiagnosed HIV patients, as well as increasing the chances of early diagnosis.

SelfDiagnostics UK provides the new Autotest HIV, a self-administered HIV test designed to offer its users an effective private method to check their HIV status. The test is designed to identify HIV in cases where exposure has occurred more than three months before the time of administering the test.

Autotest HIV can be used by both men and women who suspect that they might have been exposed to HIV. Based on an immunochromatographic assay, the test does not require any other equipment except the one provided with the kit.

The kit works by scanning the patient’s blood for HIV-1 and HIV-2 antibodies, a common sign of HIV infection. The Autotest HIV test set contains a set of easy-to-follow illustrated instructions, a safety lancet used to collect blood, a test device with integrated sampling highlighting the presence of the aforementioned antibodies and a bandage.

The test results can be interpreted fifteen minutes after taking the test, with a single line marking a negative test and two lines a positive. Users who obtain positive results are strongly recommended to consult a doctor.
