    I did a rapid HIV test at your test centre in DSC clinic in August and October 2014 . Both results are negative. It costs 40 dollars. Since it is a rapid test and I get to know the result within 20 minutes, is it testing for both type-1 and type-2 HIV? Or is the rapid test only able to detect type-1 HIV ? Is it possible for me to have any other subtypes HIV that cannot be detected?Thanks!

      Hi Dan,

      The test kits we use at our clinic and mobile testing service are designed, and approved for detection of HIV type 1 & 2. Worldwide, the predominant virus is HIV-1. While we cannot rule out other subtypes of HIV in the future, generally when people refer to HIV without specifying the type of virus they will be referring to HIV-1. The relatively uncommon HIV-2 type is concentrated in West Africa and is rarely found elsewhere.
