This study has been designed to evaluate the performance of the Chembio Diagnostics Systems, Inc. DPP® HIV 1/2 rapid test. The device is intended to qualitatively detect the presence of antibodies against HIV-1/2 in oral fluid, whole blood (capillary and venous), serum or plasma. This study will assess the DPP® HIV 1/2 Screen assay's ability to detect HIV-1.

Condition Intervention
HIV Infections
Device: In Vitro Diagnostic Device

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Study to Establish the Ability of the Chembio Diagnostics Systems, Inc. DPP HIV 1/2 Rapid Test to Qualitatively Detect the Presence of Antibodies Against HIV-1 in Oral Fluid, Whole Blood (Capillary and Venous), Serum and Plasma

Further study details as provided by Chembio Diagnostic Systems, Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The device detects HIV-1 antibodies in a variety of sample matrices: capillary whole blood, venous whole blood (with EDTA or heparin anticoagulant), oral fluid, serum and plasma (with EDTA or heparin anticoagulant). [ Time Frame: 20 minutes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The device provides a qualitative screen for the detection of antibodies to HIV-1 compared to an FDA approved HIV-1/2 EIA, with sensitivity and specificity equal to or greater than 98% at the lower 95% confidence interval boundary. [ Time Frame: 20 minutes ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
serum and plasma

Enrollment: 2808
Study Start Date: January 2010
Study Completion Date: April 2012
Primary Completion Date: April 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
