Know Your Status Sooner

We now offer the Determine™ HIV test, the first rapid test that detects both HIV-1/2 antibodies and the HIV-1 p24 antigen earlier than 2nd and 3rd generation antibody-only tests.

HIV-1 p24 antigen can appear just 12-26 days after infection. HIV-1/2 antibodies first appear significantly later – 20 to 45 days after infection. It enables health care providers to diagnose HIV infection earlier allowing individuals to seek medical care sooner.
