  • The DPP® HIV-Syphilis System is a single-use rapid, qualitative, multiplex, immunoassay for the detection of antibodies to Human Immunodeficiency Virus Types 1 and 2 (HIV-1/2), and/or Treponema pallidum bacteria (the causative agent of syphilis) in fingerstick whole blood, potassium-EDTA venous whole blood or potassium-EDTA plasma specimens.
  • The test is intended to be used with the DPP Micro Reader.
  • The test is intended for use by trained professionals in point of care and laboratory settings to aid in the diagnosis of HIV and syphilis infection.
