What is hivtestkit.ph?We are an online shop dedicated in selling Japanese made Fujibio HIV 1/2 One Step Test Device, an HIV Test Kit that is 99.9% accurate in detecting all known types of the HIV Virus including HIV-1 and HIV-2. It is the only HIV home test kit approved by the Ministry of Health of Japan. Its certifications includes ISO, FDA, CE, FSC and MHLW. The device is so accurate that it detects 1,361 out of 1,361 or 100% of HIV positive clients during its initial accuracy test registering a specificity of 100%. In an HIV negative population, it detected 24 false positives out of 38,747 tested samples registering a sensitivity of 99.938%. The device is so accurate that even if you use it with existing infection/condition that causes false positive HIV results in western blot, it will still give 99.535% accuracy as its lowest accuracy threshold.
How does Fujibio HIV Test Kit works?After being infected with HIV, the body futily produces anti-HIV proteins known as antibodies. This is how our body defends itself with an HIV infection. Fujibio HIV Test Kit detects these antibodies using the principle of double antigen sandwich immunoassay. All humans infected with HIV will eventually produce this antibody specific to HIV infection however, not everyone produces them at the same time. It will take about 6 weeks up to 6 months before a human produces anti-HIV antibodies. This is known as the window period wherein a person is infected but still tests negative for HIV. Based on the latest research, below are the average time a percentage of individuals develop HIV antibodies:
30% of infected individuals will have HIV antibodies starting 3 weeks.
60% of infected individuals will have HIV antibodies starting 6 weeks.
80% of infected individuals will have HIV antibodies starting 2 months.
95% of infected individuals will have HIV antibodies starting 3 months.
99% of infected individuals will have HIV antibodies starting 6 months.
The remaining 1% that will still test negative after 6 months are individuals with compromised immunity or disorders that prevent proper production of antibodies. Using the data above, the ideal testing time will be 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months.
How many kits should I buy?One kit is enough to accurately know your HIV status however, we recommend performing a rigid scheduled testing to be certain that you are passed the window period.
If you purchased 1 HIV test kit, we recommend testing 3 to 6 months after the last risk incident.
If you purchased 2 HIV test kits, we recommend testing 3 months and 6 months after the last risk incident.
If you purchased 3 HIV test kits, we recommend testing 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months after the last risk incident.
If you purchased 4 HIV test kits, we recommend testing immediately for baseline HIV status and then testing at 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months after the initial testing.
Risk incidents are events when you had an unprotected sexual intercourse(vaginal,anal,oral), Intravenous needle sharing, accidental needle prick or any events that could transmit HIV. Ensure that you will abstain from any HIV risk incidents during the testing period.
