Alere Determine™ HIV Combo

Every Day Counts.
Now you can help identify HIV just days after infection with the first rapid point of care 4th generation HIV test.

The Alere Determine™ HIV Combo empowers you at the point-of-care, to diagnose HIV earlier than ever before.

It’s the first rapid point-of-care test that detects both HIV-1/2 antibodies and the HIV-1 p24 antigen, which can appear just 12-26 days after infection1,2. HIV-1/2 antibodies first appear significantly later – 20 to 45 days after infection.

By detecting HIV earlier, you are helping to prevent further transmission during this extremely infectious stage.

Detect HIV sooner

The Alere Determine™ HIV 1/2 Ag/Ab Combo gives you a new advantage in the fight against AIDS – the ability to detect HIV sooner than conventional rapid tests, which rely solely on the presence of HIV-1/2 antibodies.

Point of care
4th generation HIV testing

The combination of p24 antigen and IgM/IgG antibody detection offers an earlier window of detection than third generation antibody only rapid point-of-care tests.

Break the infection cycle

By detecting HIV earlier, you are helping to prevent further transmission during this extremely infectious stage.
