Abstract

The Genie HIV-1/HIV-2 rapid assay was compared with an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and Western blot (immunoblot) by using 540 serum specimens from four different populations. The Genie HIV-1/HIV-2 assay was easy to perform, required no equipment, provided visual results within 10 min, and demonstrated excellent sensitivity and specificity compared with the Western blot.
