crb® Real-Time RT-qPCR HIV-1



Format: 100 rxns/Kit (Pack of 50 Kits)


crb® Real-Time RT-qPCR HIV-1 kit is a real-time molecular diagnostic test for quantitative screening of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from viral RNA extracted from clinical specimens

Fast: 2.5 hours from sample to result.

Flexible: Includes internal control (IC) for monitoring of potential PCR inhibitions.

Convenient: Easy reaction setup and result analysis.

Highly Informative: 

      • Fulfills WHO guidelines for viral load monitoring.
      • Can detect and quantitate HIV-1 subtype M, N and O in a single tube.

The crb® Real-Time RT-qPCR HIV-1, is an in vitro diagnostic, total nucleic acid amplification test for the qualitative detection of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1) DNA and RNA (or total nucleic acid, TNA) in human plasma or dried blood spots for automated amplification and detection.

The test is a diagnostic test, indicated for individuals who are suspected to be actively infected with HIV-1. Detection of HIV-1 TNA is indicative of active HIV infection. Infants born to mothers infected with HIV-1 may have maternal antibodies to HIV-1, and the presence of HIV-1 nucleic acid in the infant indicates active HIV-1 infection. In adults, the test may be used as an aid in the diagnosis of HIV-1 infection.
