HIV is a virus usually caught by having sex without a condom, although it can also be transferred through blood, breast milk or contaminated needles. The virus systematically weakens and destroys your body's ability to fight infection and illness. It is the main cause of AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome).
The test looks for specific HIV antibodies that are produced shortly after infection. A P24 Antigen test is also carried out to reduce the risk of a false diagnosis.
Due to the sensitive nature and serious implications of a positive result, all tests are checked by a confirmatory test. This way you can be sure of a highly accurate and reliable result.
