Dual rapid test for HIV and syphilis: A laboratory evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy of the Standard Q HIV/Syphilis Combo Test



Dual rapid test for HIV and syphilis: A laboratory evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy of the Standard Q HIV/Syphilis Combo Test



Diagnostic Microbiology and Infectious Disease 94(1): 30-32



We evaluated the Standard Q HIV/Syphilis Combo Test (SD Biosensor, South Korea), a dual rapid test using stored sera (N = 400) in a laboratory setting in Lima, Peru. The sensitivity and specificity for HIV antibody detection was 100.0% (95% CI: 98.2-100.0%) and 99.5% (95% CI: 97.2-100.0%), respectively. For treponemal antibody detection the sensitivity and specificity was 97.5% (95%CI:94.3-99.2%) and 100.0% (95%CI:98.2-100.0%), respectively.
