HIV Testing and Screening
Since the AIDS epidemic in 1980, a significant amount of research has been pouring in on HIV testing & diagnosing, and treatment. Depending on the time of exposure, different types of HIV tests can pick up HIV antigens/antibodies to the amount of HIV viral load in your system. Rapid HIV 4th generation testing can determine your HIV results in 20 mins.

1. HIV Test: HIV RNA Test
The HIV RNA test detects HIV virus genetic material and measures how many copies of HIV (viral load) are present in your blood at a particular time. It can track increases and decreases in your HIV viral load and, in conjunction with a CD4 count, be used to evaluate treatment effectiveness.
2. HIV-1/2 AB test
3. Rapid 4th Generation Test
Fourth-generation tests are an excellent way to find out if someone has HIV. They can find the virus reliably one month after a person gets it.
These tests only need a small amount of blood to detect HIV antibodies as well as p24 antigens. Results in 20 mins.
