Maker of leading in-home HIV test encourages testing
Date:11/6/2012

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Home Access Health Corporation, manufacturer of at-home laboratory test services, today said that individuals interested in obtaining an easy-to-use in-home HIV test that offers anonymity, confirmed results in a single day, and professional counseling should turn to its Home Access® Express HIV-1 Test System.

"In-home testing for HIV can inform persons at risk for HIV and AIDS about their health status and help reduce HIV transmission rates," said Mary Vogt, President of Home Access Health Corporation.  "We encourage testing, but believe strongly that any in-home testing provide the user with accurate, confirmed results quickly; as well as high-quality counseling by trained professionals that directs users to qualified medical care."

Increasingly, Vogt said, medical professionals and HIV activists, while recognizing the value of increased HIV testing, have raised concerns about the recently introduced over-the-counter rapid HIV test that relies on oral fluid rather than the more reliable fingerstick blood sample.  The drawbacks, they say, include lack of trained HIV counselors and medical care referrals, as well as inaccurate results that may lead people to believe erroneously that they are free of infection.

The concerns are legitimate, says Vogt, whose Home Access® Express HIV-1 Test System was approved for in-home use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1996.  "Accurate results and professional counseling are a must.  Results offered without the benefit of counseling can be devastating,"

The anonymous Home Access® Express HIV-1 test system is greater than 99.9 percent accurate, and detects HIV-1 by using a fingerstick blood sample collected by the user. The sample is sent overnight to a certified testing laboratory using FDA-approved assays.  Preliminary positive results are confirmed and results are available by telephone the
