INSTI HIV-1 Rapid Antibody Test has been approved as an in vitro qualitative test for accurate detection-in 60 seconds of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1) in EDTA, Whole blood, finger stick blood, serum or plasma by Health Canada. The INSTI is extremely convenient as all the necessary components for such testing are included in a single device. This also limits error margins. INSTI is invaluable in not only a South African society based on our infection rate but on an international scale as well. As the best form of cure in this case is management if not prevention.
