Introducing ZIVA™

Viral load monitoring is an essential part of HIV treatment, but until now it has been difficult to administer in near-patient settings. ZIVA™ changes that. 

ZIVA™ is a medium throughput, fully-automated viral load monitoring system purpose-built to meet the requirements of decentralized labs like those in district hospitals. 

How retroviruses work and why they are so challenging​

Retroviruses are especially dangerous as they permanently disfigure the host cell’s DNA. HIV is also distinctive in that it targets T cells – the cells that run your immune system. This cripples a body’s defenses and leaves it unable to recover from infection.
