At Malmin Medical we use the INSTI™ kit which has Proven accuracy of ≥ 99.8% Sensitivity and ≥ 99.5% Specificity from 90 days post contact for detecting HIV 1 and 2 antibodies.
INSTI™ preparation is minimal and results show up in as little as 60 seconds.
INSTI™ is an FDA approved, Health Canada approved and CE Marked medical device and has undergone extensive clinical and non-clinical studies that have demonstrated its accuracy in direct comparison to licensed or approved laboratory-based methods.
INSTI™ is equivalent to the most sensitive licensed or approved laboratory-based assays in early antibody detection. However, patients who may be in the “window period” of HIV infection may test Non-Reactive in the INSTI™ test.
