In 2013 Atomo launched the world’s first integrated, blood-based rapid diagnostic test (RDT) for screening for HIV. The range has since grown to include not only professional use tests but also ones specifically approved for HIV self-testing. Their unique design and built-in features mean that HIV test products manufactured by Atomo are simpler to use than standard multi-component test kits, with less scope for user errors.
Where standard HIV test kits require multiple accessories and necessitate that the user perform several procedures in sequence, Atomo test devices integrate the procedural steps in one easy-to-use device.
Having been approved by medical regulators internationally – including the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and European CE marking – HIV test products manufactured by Atomo are now available from specialist commercialisation partners in multiple countries worldwide.
Self-testing is recognised for its potential to positively impact HIV detection rates. The convenience and privacy afforded by HIV self-testing can have a role to play in reaching previously undiagnosed and at-risk groups.
By working with HIV charities and frontline health professionals in countries with high HIV infection rates, Atomo has developed integrated HIV self-test solutions to meet the needs of lay users. The tests require only a small drop of blood from the fingertip, and give an accurate result in just 15 minutes.
HIV self-tests designed and manufactured by Atomo are CE marked and available from specialist commercialisation partners in multiple countries worldwide.
The Atomo HIV Self Test is available in Australia directly from Atomo Diagnostics – visit atomohivtest.com for details – and is the first and only HIV self-test to have been approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
Ideally suited for point of care testing, Atomo HIV tests for professional use need only 10uL of capillary blood, and give an accurate result in just 15 minutes. Because they make testing simpler, safer, and more convenient, frontline healthcare providers worldwide choose HIV tests designed and manufactured by Atomo.
User-centred design removes the need for multiple test components, improving test performance by integrating features in an easy-to-use device:
