Product information

The BioSURE HIV self test is a highly accurate method of testing for the HIV virus. The test uses a small blood sample to check for the antibodies used by the body to fight the HIV infection. Once you have completed the testing process you can see your result within 15 minutes. Unlike the ‘TDL-TINY’ test we also offer, this test is not sent to an external lab.

HIV: key information

HIV is a sexually transmitted infection where the virus attacks the immune system, preventing it from being able to effectively fight common infections and diseases. When the virus is contracted it does not always cause obvious symptoms straight away. The only way to know if you have HIV is to get tested. HIV can be managed with retro antiviral treatment, so that those living with the virus can continue to live healthy and active lives.

Why should I have a HIV test?

Knowing your HIV status is important. If the virus is present in your blood then it is important to commence treatment as soon as possible. Starting treatment early can benefit the overall outcome. It also means that you can take precautions to prevent passing the virus onto others.

If you don’t have HIV and wish to use HIV prevention treatment, known as PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis), you will need to make sure that the HIV virus is not already present in your blood.

What do the results of a HIV test show?

The BioSURE HIV self test uses a small blood sample to look for specific antibodies that are produced by the body to fight the HIV infection.

Different people produce antibodies at different rates. It is possible to use this test from four weeks after potential exposure, but you would be advised to take another test at 12 weeks to confirm a negative result. By 12 weeks the majority of people would have began to produce the specific antibodies, if the HIV virus was present.

How accurate is the BioSURE HIV self test?

This test has been found to be 99.7% accurate, provided you follow the instructions correctly.

Q&A

How does it work?

Once you receive your test kit, all you need to do is follow the instructions to take a small blood sample. The test looks for the antibodies used to fight off the HIV infection. These can be present from four weeks after potential transmission but they can take up to 12 weeks to appear.

The test provides a result in 15 minutes. The kit can then be discarded in the opaque bag with your general waste.

How long does it take?

Once you have followed the instructions you will need to wait for 15 minutes before you can take your reading.

What kind of sample do I have to give for the test?

This HIV test uses a small sample of blood taken via a finger lancet device.

Will it hurt?

No. You may feel a small scratch or pinching sensation at the site.

What happens if the test is negative?

If one line appears on the test then you have received a negative result.

If you have tested before the 12 week window period then you may wish to complete another test after 12 weeks to confirm your negative result.

What happens if my result is positive?

If two lines appear on your test then you have received a positive result. You should seek to have this result confirmed by a healthcare professional. They will be able to offer advice and discuss treatment options.

Can HIV be cured?

HIV is not curable. However, current treatment practices mean that the virus can be kept under control and even render it ‘undetectable’. People living with HIV who get the right treatment can lead healthy and active lives.
