Drive better decisions for a positive impact on patients’ lives
The cobas® HIV-1/HIV-2 Qualitative Test for use on the cobas® 6800/8800 Systems is the first automated nucleic acid test to enable differentiation between HIV-1 and HIV-2 infections, applying the clinically proven dual target design (gag and LTR) for HIV-1. During seroconversion studies in 25 commercially available panels, cobas® HIV-1/HIV-2 detects HIV on average one week earlier than serology. cobas® HIV-1/HIV-2 offers flexible testing features (plasma, serum, dried blood spots for early infant diagnosis), highest throughput and absolute automation with ready-to-use reagents.
- Diagnose HIV positive patients as early as possible
