Our program first screens your blood specimen using a system called the Enzyme-Linked Immunoassay (ELISA). If this screen is positive (repeatedly reactive), a more specific
confirmatory test, Immunofluoresence Assay (IFA) will be used. These are the same tests used by doctors in hospitals.
Test Accuracy :
In clinical trials conducted at nine U.S. medical centers, test results from participants using the Home Access HIV-1 test system were compared to professionally collected venous
blood specimens from the same participants. There proved to be a complete correlation between the two tests, yielding an overall test accuracy of greater than 99.9% for the
Home Access HIV-1 test program. This means that the Home Access HIV-1 test program is as accurate as tests used by doctors in hospitals.
