BioSURE HIV Self Test
According to the Public Health England 2017 report on HIV, there are an estimated 12,000 people in the UK who are not aware they have HIV and they are unknowingly responsible for the majority of onward transmissions. It is really important to know your HIV status, especially if you think you have had a potential risk of exposure to the virus.
Treatments are now so advanced that with the correct treatment at the correct time, the level of virus in your blood can become undetectable, meaning no damage is done to your immune system and it is extremely unlikely HIV can be transmitted. But if you don't test, you can't treat.
Early diagnosis is critical, as the sooner treatment can be started the better the outcome.
BioSURE HIV Self Test, the first approved CE marked kit, is incredibly simple to use and is proven to be over 99.7% accurate. It allows you to discreetly determine your HIV status in a place that you choose and at a time that is convenient to you. It needs only a tiny drop of blood and gives a clear and simple to read result in just 15 minutes.
Your BioSURE HIV Self Test will usually be delivered within one working day, in plain packaging to an address of your choice. Everything is included for you to be able to perform your test in private and dispose of it discreetly.
Your test looks for antibodies to HIV rather than the virus itself and everybody makes these antibodies at different times. This is why it is really important to test again after 3 months as by this time everybody will have made the antibodies.
