HIV Self Test Kit Launched in UK

BioSure HIV Self Test allows you to discreetly determine your HIV status in the comfort of your own home at a time that is convenient to you. The test is easy to perform, requires only a tiny drop of blood and gives an extremely accurate, simple to read result in 15 minutes. 

This new innovative HIV Self Test is over 99% accurate from 3 months after suspected exposure to the infection. The test offers discretion and privacy to the people, who don't want to go out to hospitals until they are sure. It has been priced at £29.95, and will be initially sold only on line through BioSURE's dedicated website www.hivselftest.co.uk and through the NHS online shop www.freedoms-shop.com.

BioSure also puts a word of advice to its potential user "If your test is negative it does not mean you are definitely not infected with HIV, especially if your exposure may have occurred within the past 3 months. If you engage in activities that increase your risk of exposure to HIV you should test regularly. This test is not suitable if you are receiving highly active anti-retroviral treatment (HAART)".
