Clinic 30 offers a comprehensive fully STI and HIV screening service. We also utilize HIV Point of Care testing, also known as Rapid Testing. To find out more about the services offered, please contact us.
One of the most accurate resources available to us at Clinic 30 is The Alere Determine™ HIV Combo. We can help identify HIV just days after infection. It allows us to diagnose HIV earlier than ever before.
The Alere Determine™ HIV Combo is the first rapid point-of-care test that detects both HIV-1/2 antibodies and the HIV-1 antigen, which can appear just 12-26 days after infection.¹,² HIV-1/2 antibodies first appear significantly later – 20 – 45 days after infection. By detecting HIV earlier, you are helping to prevent further transmission during this extremely infectious stage.
For more information on the Alere Determine™ HIV Combo, the first and only rapid HIV test approved by the TGA for use at the point-of-care in Australia.
Benefits of Rapid Testing
We can now detect both HIV-1/2 antibodies and the HIV-1 p24 antigen, which can appear just 12 to 26 days after infection.
A rapid test helps healthcare providers to break the infection cycle by screening for acute HIV infection earlier than traditional 3rd generation HIV antibody tests.
The Alere Determine Combo provides clear results in just 20 minutes, with built-in quality controls to let you know the test is working.
