Amethyst HIV1&2 test kit is a self test kit that provides 100% privacy to the user during and after
testing using mouth swab (saliva). It’s very accurate and gives a rapid result (2min.) Therefore, everyone
can go ahead to find out for oneself his/her HIV status in the closet. There is no need for Healthcare
assistance because the method for use is simple and brief as contained in the leaflet.
This is a rapid, diagnostic device that utilizes the principle of colloidal gold lateral chromatography to detect HIV type 1 and type 2 antibodies present in the human mouth. It is often obtained and interpreted as a visible colour reaction.
This kind of detection is peculiar due to its extreme sensitivity to the presence of the antibodies found around the
mucosa of the human upper and lower gum lines, clinically known as Oral Mucosal Transudate.
