The Multispot™ HIV-1/HIV-2 Rapid Test is sensitive and specific for the detection and differentiation of HIV-1 and HIV-2. These attributes, along with best-in-class specificity among HIV-1 rapid tests, make its use attractive in a confirmatory capacity, especially in settings where HIV-2 is prevalent. Widespread use as a primary screening test is largely thwarted by moderate complexity and high cost.
