We evaluated a rapid membrane-based assay (HIV-CHEK) for detection of antibodies to HIV using 737 serum samples in Nairobi, Kenya. The rapid assay had a sensitivity of 96.3% and specificity of 99.8% when compared with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and Western blot assay. Results were similar using fresh or previously frozen serum samples… CONTINUE READING
