Newly developed fourth-generation HIV-1 antigen/antibody immunochromatography kit

Technology for manufacturing a fourth-generation immunochromatography kit has been developed. This kit can be used for simultaneous measurement of either two HIV-1 antibodies, or an HIV-1 antibody and an HIV-1 antigen. It can be used to measure HIV-1 antigens immediately after HIV infection, making it possible to greatly reduce the seroconversion window period.
