Interpretation of Results
POSITIVE:* Two or three distinct colored lines appear. One line should always appear in the
control line region (C), and another one or two apparent colored line(s) should appear in the
test line region(s) (T1 and/or T2).
*NOTE: The intensity of the color in the test line region (T1 and T2) will vary depending on
the concentration of HIV antibodies present in the specimen. Therefore, any shade of color in
the test line region (T1 and/or T2) should be considered positive.
NEGATIVE: One colored line appears in the control region (C). No apparent colored lines
appear in the test line regions (T1 and T2).
INVALID: Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural
techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and
repeat the test with a new test device. If the problem persists, discontinue using the test kit
immediately and contact your local distributor.
