VISITECT® CD4 is a ground-breaking, disposable, POC test for determining CD4 baseline in people living with HIV. Developed by the Burnet Institute in Melbourne, Australia, it is based on proven lateral flow technology and provides an affordable, convenient, instrument-free solution for use in laboratories and remote clinics worldwide, enabling ART therapy to become accessible to all people living with HIV.

With training, the test provides an easy-to-use, instrument-free option for a plethora of healthcare workers, including clinicians, laboratory technicians, nurses, community healthcare workers and counsellors.

Testing requires basic training, a drop of whole blood and a 40-minute waiting period. Results are semi-quantitative and can be read by eye.
