No self test is easier to use, so you can test for HIV at home, and get results in just 15 minutes.

Biosure HIV Self Test is an easy to use test that puts you in control. The test requires only a small drop of blood. No mixing, or measuring, and you'll get a result in 15 minutes. HIV rarely causes symptoms, but early diagnosis means effective treatment can be given to protect your health and to prevent onward transmission.

  • When you are ready, open the pouch.
  • Remove the buffer pot from the end of your BioSURE HIV Self test device and place it in the hole in the tray.
  • Remove the lid from the end of the safety lancet. Place the red pad against your finger and push down until you hear a click. The lancet will make a tiny cut in your skin to produce a small drop of blood
  • Touch the tip of your test device onto the drop of blood until the tip fills. You now have enough blood to run your test.
  • Now pierce the foil top of the buffer pot with the tip of the test device and PUSH DOWN HARD. It is essential that you push the test down to the bottom of the buffer pot until you can't push it any further.
  • Start timing 15 minutes. The test needs to remain upright in the box while it runs. After 3 minutes check to see that your test is running. If it's not, make sure the device is pushed right to the bottom of the buffer pot. After 15 minutes your test will be completed and you will be able to move on to read your result.
  • If no lines show, your test has not worked. If one line shows, your test is negative. If two lines show, your test is postive. You must consult a healthcare professional to confirm a positive result.

BioSURE HIV Self Test may not detect HIV infections that have occurred within the last 3 months. BioSURE HIV Self Test is simple to perform and extremely accurate but only if you perform the test correctly. It is essential you carefully read and follow all of the instructions. BioSURE HIV Self Test must be stored at room temperature, but not above 30C as this will affect the test performance. Do not store in direct sunlight or above a radiator. BioSURE HIV Self Test is not suitable if you are receiving active retroviral treatment (ART). BioSURE HIV Self Test will only work with a sample of whole human blood.

Wash your hands and ensure they are clean and dry before starting the test. Ensure the environment where you will perform the test is light and bright so you can perform your test and read the results easily. Before opening your BioSURE HIV Self Test foil pouch check that it is not damaged. Do not use your test if the pouch is torn or perforated in any way. Before using your BioSURE HIV Self Test, check that the expiry date of the test has not passed. Do not open the BioSURE HIV Self Test foil pouch until you are ready to perform the test.

You will need a timer. Do not read your test result after 1 hour of performing the test. BioSURE HIV Self Test is a single use, disposable IVD test device. (IVD means In Vitro Diagnostic device, a diagnostic test that is performed outside of a living body). To dispose of your BioSURE HIV Self Test please place all of the components back in to the box and place the box into the opaque disposal bag included. The bag can then be sealed to help protect your privacy and thrown away with your normal rubbish.

If your result is positive you should contact your local sexual health clinic or healthcare professional who will perform a confirmatory HIV test and provide advice. 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.
