Author Affiliations +
Reliable and economical Human Immnodeficiency Virus (HIV) testing was achieved by optical absorption spectroscopy of the core of the hair in the range of 400 nm to 800 nm. In HIV+ patients, extra optical active material is deposited in the core and optical absorption spectra, recorded in polarized radiation reveal special features, which can be used for guidance, detection, monitoring and control.
