How do you test for HIV? We’ve got a guide
- by admin
A new diagnostic tool from the UK is proving that you don’t need a blood test to find out if you have HIV.
The Blood and Cervical Biopsy is a simple device that tests for HIV by injecting a small amount of the virus into a sample.
A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that the device is as accurate as blood tests, which can take days to produce positive results.
It has been tested on a number of people and found to be as accurate and sensitive as a standard HIV test.
There have been concerns about the device’s safety and reliability, as it is made from an unknown polymer, and its use has been linked to an increased risk of infections.
However, the device has been widely adopted and used by healthcare professionals.
The technology was developed by a company called BioNumerics, which is based in Oxfordshire, UK.
The company has been working with NHS Trusts in the UK, as well as in the US, Germany, and Canada, and it is expected to be launched later this year.
This means that if you are already infected with HIV and you do not want to be tested, you could test by putting the device in your pocket, in your underwear or on your face, and using the Blood and Skin Cervix Test kit from the NHS.
There is also a separate device available from Bristol-Myers Squibb, called the BioTEST. “
So having this new diagnostic device in the NHS will be hugely beneficial, and is a real game-changer for healthcare providers across the UK.”
There is also a separate device available from Bristol-Myers Squibb, called the BioTEST.
This is made up of a thin film of DNA that contains the HIV virus.
It was used by the NHS to detect people who have not yet been diagnosed with HIV, and has been shown to be 99.99 per cent accurate.
