OraQuick® HIV Self-Test is a test used to test for HIV in your own home. This test uses oral fluid to check for HIV-1 and HIV-2 antibodies and returns results in about 20 minutes. The test can work accurately if you follow the steps provided carefully, as the test can detect the virus in over 99% of people who are infected with HIV. This is a screening test therefore it is always advised to have a second test to confirm your results.
Yes OraQuick® HIV Self-Test is an antibody test and it detects the cells that the body's immune (defense) system creates in response to HIV infection. When the HIV virus enters the body, the body starts to produce antibodies. In the case of HIV, the antibodies can't fight off the infection. But, the presence of the antibodies can be used to tell whether a person has HIV in their body. Most of the HIV tests available detect the presence of HIV antibodies and not the virus itself.
Many credible medical institutes including CDC and multiple supporting studies confirm that HIV does not spread through saliva. The OraQuick® test detects antibodies produced in response to HIV infection, not the virus itself.
The oral fluid HIV tests are very accurate. Studies have shown that the OraQuick® HIV Self-Test detected 100 percent of people who were infected with HIV and 99.1 percent of people who were not infected with HIV.
The ingredients in the test fluid are not toxic and pose no known health risk in the amount provided in the vial.
