Testing if someone is suffering from HIV, is a cumbersome process. You have to go to a pathology lab and spend hours undergoing different tests. You will be fortunate if you get the result the same day. in small pathology labs you cannot be sure of the HIV test. So you will have to go to a bigger and better lab where you can be pretty sure that the result of the test can be dependable.

But things are set to go a sort of metamorphosis in the coming days.

Diagnosing HIV can be as easy as checking your blood sugar level at your home. You can actually diagnose yourself for HIV virus with the world’s very first self-testing kit in just 15 minutes.

The BioSURE HIV Self Test, which carries the European wide specialist CE mark, has passed thorough tests and only requires a pinprick of blood and is more than 99.7 percent accurate, the Mirror reported. The test offers discretion and privacy to the people, who don’t want to go out to hospitals until they are sure. It has been priced at 29.95 pounds, and will be initially sold only on line through BioSURE’s dedicated website www.hivselftest.co.uk and through the NHS online shop www.freedoms-shop.com.

The people behind the new testing kit are very excited. Brigette Bard, BioSure founder and CEO said that they believe their device could help to reduce HIV infection rates. However, the self-test may not detect recent HIV infection as it can take up to 3 months for the level of antibodies to become detectable. (ANI)
