Sensitivity *
The sensitivity of the test was calculated at 100% with a confidence interval of 99.1% to 100%. All HIV-positive subjects included in the study achieved a correct result. No false negatives were observed **.

The specificity of the test was calculated at 99.8%, with a confidence interval from 99.5 to 100%. 0.2% of seronegative subjects obtained an incorrect result, i.e. 0.2% of the results were false positives ***.

A feasibility study carried out on the execution of the test by people without specific skills showed that over 99.2% of the participants obtained an interpretable result and that over 98.1% correctly interpreted the result. Positive results were interpreted correctly in 100% of cases.

By examining samples containing substances or which had some pathology no significant interferences were found that could potentially affect the test result.
* Studies of 503 people (sensitivity) and 2051 people (specificity) in the United States and the European Union.
** False Negative: Sample tested positive for the target marker but incorrectly classified as negative by the test.
