Advanced 4th generation assays for earlier diagnosis

The VIDAS® HIV panel provides a combination of advanced 4th generation assays for improved detection of acute HIV during the critical “window period”.

  • Combined detection of anti-HIV-1 (groups M and O) and anti-HIV-2 total immunoglobulins + HIV-1 p24 antigen
  • True dual information: differentiation of Ag and Ab signals
  • Highest p24 Ag sensitivity currently available
  • Easy-to-use solution
  • Description
  • Technical Details


Many of the 35.3 million people infected with HIV worldwide are unaware of their condition, as symptoms may be absent or non-specific. In addition, there is a mean period of 3 weeks between contamination and the appearance of the first anti-HIV serum antibodies1Early detection of seroconversions is thus one of the main HIV diagnostic challenges.

The VIDAS® automated HIV infection screening tests allow simultaneous detection of p24 antigen and anti-HIV antibodies enabling the time lapse between contamination and diagnosis of the infection to be decreased. Identifying more primary infections can make a key difference in reducing transmission. Providing appropriate therapy as fast as possible is also essential to improve patient outcome.

A unique assay concept

Excellent performances

  • Best analytical sensitivity compared to other commonly-used assays2,3
  • Lowest limit of detection of HIV infection2,3
  • Highest p24 Ag sensitivity currently available (Lower Limit of Detection against the WHO standard):
    • VIDAS® HIV Duo Ultra: 0.66 IU/mL3
    • VIDAS® HIV Duo Quick: 0.43 IU/mL3
    • VIDAS® HIV P24:0.73 – 1.15 IU/mL3

Ease of use and flexibility for your lab
