Description

The Need The World Health Organization estimates that 35 million people worldwide are currently living with HIV/AIDS.1 Of those infected, 2.1 million represent new infections and an estimated 240,000 are children.2 One-third of all people living with HIV reside in nine countries in southern Africa, which only account for 2% of the global population.3 Without timely HIV testing and therapy initiation, one-third of HIV-infected infants will die before their first birthday and more than 50% will die before reaching two years old.2 Early diagnosis of HIV infection in infants is a necessity; however, many patients are lost to follow-up while waiting for an early test. A highly sensitive HIV qualitative test is needed for detecting HIV infection in pediatric patients 18 months of age or younger. To reduce loss to patient follow up, a near-patient, same-day HIV PCR test is critical to expand access for high risk patients and infants. The Solution Xpert HIV-1 Qual is a qualitative test that provides on-demand molecular testing for early diagnosis. Based on the GeneXpert technology, Xpert HIV-1 Qual provides a total nucleic acid based test for RNA and proviral DNA in one fully integrated cartridge.
