What is HIV and AIDS?
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that attacks the immune system, the body’s defense against illness. If left untreated, HIV can lead to AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). HIV and AIDS can’t be cured, but the medications available today help people live normal life spans.
How does the test work?
The test uses simple flow-through technology to detect HIV-1 and HIV-2 antibodies using a drop of human fingerstick blood. The test does not detect the virus itself. The test dot will only be visible if HIV antibodies are present. The INSTI® HIV Self Test is simple to perform and very accurate, but it will only work correctly if you carefully read and follow the instructions. You may test positive with INSTI® HIV Self Test in as little as 21-22 days after infection1, however, it can take as long as 3 months to produce a positive result. A negative result may not be accurate until 3 months after infection.

How accurate is the test?
Extensive research studies have shown that this test is extremely accurate when performed correctly. The accuracy of medical tests is typically described in terms of sensitivity (all truly positive individuals test positive) and specificity (all truly negative persons test negative). INSTI® HIV Self Test has been shown to have a sensitivity of 99.8-100% and a specificity of 99.5-99.8%.
