HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that damages the cells in your immune system and weakens your ability to fight everyday infections and disease.
HIV Remains a Widespread and Deadly Disease
HIV is a serious public health pandemic and management of this disease is one of the United Nation’s sustainable health goals. Worldwide, HIV remains the biggest killer of women of child bearing age. So far, HIV has claimed 40.1 million lives and could claim another 7.7 million over the next 10 years.
Most HIV infections are asymptomatic in the first five years of infection; while there is no cure, HIV treatment transforms the disease into a manageable chronic health condition. Early diagnosis, through rapid testing, prevents onward transmission and disease progression.
Early HIV Rapid Detection
By deploying eAMP technology, the SwiftDx early HIV detection test will be an ultra-boosted sensitivity dual antibody and antigen diagnostic that will close the possible testing window to as little as 14 days after infection.
Our affordable, easy to use and highly sensitive assay would be applicable in clinical settings as a point-of-care device and as a self-test application.
