HIV Detection Kits

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a retrovirus which destroys essential cells in the human immune system, such as CD4+ lymphocytes (a type of T cell), macrophages and dendritic cells. Infection with HIV therefore leads to an impaired immune system and increased susceptibility to opportunistic cancers and infections. Due to the mutating nature of HIV and damage to the T cells, the immune system is unable to fight off infections and disease. Without treatment, HIV can progress to Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The rate of HIV progression to AIDS depends on a number of different factors including viral, host and environmental factors. However, with adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART), many individuals with HIV will never progress to AIDS, having near normal life expectancy.   Transmission of HIV is through direct contact with infected bodily fluids, either sexually; by the sharing of blood-contaminated needles or instruments; maternally through childbirth or breastfeeding; or via blood transfusion/organ transplant. 

There are 2 kits available for the detection of HIV:

HIV End-Point PCR/RT-PCR Kit, 24 reactions
  • Ready to use format, including Master Mix for the target and PCR control to monitor for PCR inhibition and validate the quality
  • Specific Primer mix for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Positive control and a negative control to confirm the integrity of the kit reagents
  • Loading dye and a DNA ladder to facilitate qualitative analysis of the results on an agarose gel
HIV End-Point PCR/RT-PCR Primer Set and Controls, 100 reactions
  • Specific Primer mix and Positive Control for the pathogen/virus/viroid of interest
  • Nuclease-free water
  • Can be used together with Norgen’s PCR/RT-PCR Master Mix (#28007/#28113)or customer supplied master mix

For research use only and NOT intended for in vitro diagnostics.

Storage Conditions and Product Stability
All kit components should be stored at -20°C upon arrival. Repeated thawing and freezing (> 2 x) of the Master Mix, Control Master Mix and Positive Control should be avoided, as this may affect the performance of the assay. If the reagents are to be used only intermittently, they should be frozen in aliquots. All reagents can be stored for 1 year at -20°C without showing any reduction in performance.
