    How do we deliver the HIV home test kit?

    You can decide how you would like to receive your HIV test kit.

    We do not use the post office any longer as most parcels were never received.

    The best option is to have your parcel couriered to your door. This service carries a charge of R75 and is most effective in the Pretoria and Johannesburg areas. Note that the courier fee is different for different areas.

    In order to make use of the same day courier option your payment would need to be received by us before 10am. Should your payment be received after 10am we will dispatch your parcel the following morning.

    To ensure complete discretion we will never mark the packaging with details of the contents.

    Types of HIV tests

    Antibody tests

    The most common HIV test is an antibody test. Antibodies are part of your immune system that are produced when you come into contact with an infection. Antibody tests look for this immune response. These tests can be finger-prick tests or use blood samples sent to a laboratory. If this result is negative or non-reactive, then you are HIV negative.

    Combined antibody/antigen tests

    It is now common for antibody tests to also test for antigens. These are called 4th generation tests or combined antibody/antigen (Ag/Ab) tests. In these tests the antigen being tested is a major HIV protein called p24.

    Viral load (RNA PCR) test

    PCR stands for Polymerase Chain Reaction. This test looks directly for HIV in blood. It has the shortest potential window period and can be used from 3 days to 4 weeks after an exposure.
