HOW DOES IT WORK?
This HIV 1+2 Saliva Test doesn't use saliva and is actually called an "Oral Test". It uses an fluid called oral mucosal transudate, which lives in the cheeks and gums. Aside from the fluid it uses for testing, this oral HIV test works just like the HIV blood tests - it's testing for HIV antibodies, not the actual disease. When a person has HIV, his or her immune system produces antibodies in a futile attempt to kill the virus. So if a person has HIV, he/she also has HIV antibodies. And while an infected person's oral fluid contains hardly any of the HIV virus itself -- that's why kissing won't transmit the disease -- it contains plenty of HIV antibodies. The thing that makes antibodies a good substance to test for is that when the immune system produces antibodies in response to the proteins for a specific disease, which are called antigens, the antibodies bind to those antigens in an attempt to fight off the disease. If you add another protein, or enzyme, into the mix that reacts to the binding of antibody to antigen, you have yourself a good test for the disease.
The HIV 1+2 Saliva Test contains a membrane strip which is precoated recombinant HIV 1 capture antigen (gp41) and HIV 2capture antigen (GP36) in test line. The anti human LG-colloidal gold conjugate and saliva specimen move along the membrane chromatographically to the test region (T), forming a visible line as the antigen-antibody ant human lg particle complex forms with a high degree with a high degree of sensitivity and specific T y. This test device of letters T and C as “test line” and “control line”on the surface of the cassette. The test line and the control line in the result window are not visible before applying any specimen. The control line is used for procedural control. Control line should always appear if the test procedure is performed properly and the test reagents of control line are working.
