The Need

  • Measurement of blood plasma HIV-1 RNA using PCR is established as the standard of care in assessing HIV-positive patient prognosis and response to antiretroviral therapy
  • It is estimated that only 75% of people living with HIV worldwide have access to viral load testing. In Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs), this figure is below 50%1
  • HIV viral load tests that can be performed in lower complexity settings are needed to increase access to the standard of care and help achieve the UNAIDS HIV targets by 20301

The Solution

  • The Xpert HIV-1 Viral Load XC test is an on-demand quantitative PCR test incorporating dual target detection for extended strain coverage
  • Using GeneXpert® technology, the Xpert HIV-1 Viral Load XC test automates the test process in one fully integrated cartridge and enables testing in the laboratory and near patient settings
  • Provides users with advantages of simple workflow, fast results, and flexibility for low-to-high volume testing

The Impact

  • Improve Patient Care: Enable better treatment options by reduced loss to follow-up and shorter turn-around times between sample collection and reporting results to patients2
  • Increase Efficiency: Fast results enable earlier interventions with counseling and therapy2,3
  • Increase access to viral load testing: Deliver lab-quality results in multiple settings3,4
