BioSURE HIV Self test kit
The world's easiest HIV Test. No questions. No labs. No waiting.
BioSURE HIV Self Test is very simple to perform and requires just a tiny drop of blood.
The BioSURE HIV Self Test was the first approved CE marked product and is the bestselling HIV Self Test in the UK.
You can test wherever and whenever is most convenient for you and get your easy to read result in just 15 minutes.
HIV is a treatable condition, once you know your status. With correct and early treatment, you can protect your own and your partner's health.
Your BioSURE Self test is extremely accurate, however, if you get a positive test result you must get your result confirmed by a healthcare professional.
This test may not detect the most recent HIV infections, because it looks for antibodies to HIV and each person makes these at different times.
– Not suitable for people with a bleeding disorder.
– Not suitable for use by people under the age of 16 years.
– Not suitable for people receiving any form of antiretroviral treatment for HIV.

How to use
Please read enclosed leaflet and information carefully before use.
For in vitro diagnostic use as a self-test for HIV as an aid to diagnosis by an individual.
Find and remove the buffer pot from the end of the test device. Place buffer pot in the hole in the tray.
Remove cover. Place the red pad of lancet on side of finger. Push the lancet down until it 'clicks'. You can squeeze to make the drop bigger.
Touch the tip of your test onto the drop of blood. The tip will automatically fill.
Push the tip of your test through the foil lid into the buffer pot. PUSH DOWN HARD. You must make sure that you push completely down to the bottom of the buffer pot.
Now wait... Start your timer. You need to time 15 minutes. After about 3 minutes, CHECK to make sure your test is running. If your test is running, you will see the colour moving up the test strip. If not, push the test down to the bottom of the buffer pot.
