  • FAQ

    • What is the OraQuick In-Home HIV Test?

      The OraQuick In-Home HIV Test is a private, and accurate way to test for HIV in your own home. It is the same test preferred by many public health professionals.

      The OraQuick In-Home HIV Test is an in-vitro diagnostic home-use test for HIV (HIV-1 and HIV-2) in oral fluid. This test works by looking for your body's response (antibodies) to fighting the HIV virus. A positive result is preliminary and follow-up confirmatory testing is needed.

    • Is the OraQuick In-Home HIV Test a qualitative or quantitative testing device?

      The OraQuick In-Home HIV Test is a qualitative test that is designed to be visually read and test for the presence of antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2. It can provide results such as:

      - preliminary positive,

      - negative, or

      - test not working (invalid).

      The test is not quantitative in nature. So, the intensity of the lines on the test stick does not correlate with the stage of the disease or infection potential.

    • How does an HIV antibody test work?

      A rapid HIV test can produce accurate results in about 20 minutes. Standard screening tests can take up to 2 weeks.

    • What are the advantages of rapid tests for HIV using oral fluids?

      Rapid HIV tests that use oral fluid are safe and accurate, and they provide quick results. They're a good option for people who don't like to have blood drawn or their finger pricked. The OraQuick In-Home HIV Test also provides benefits such as convenience and privacy.

      Rapid HIV tests that use oral fluid are safer for healthcare workers. The risk of exposure to infectious diseases is much lower from oral fluid than from blood. Contact with saliva has never been proven to result in the transmission (spread) of HIV.

    • What is a rapid HIV test?

      Rapid HIV test results are as accurate as other screening tests for HIV. The OraQuick® In-Home HIV Test is a personal test that gives you fast results in just 20 minutes. As with all HIV screening tests, a positive test result must be confirmed with an additional test before a diagnosis of HIV can be made.

    • How well do HIV rapid tests work?

      In a professional setting, rapid HIV tests are more than 99% accurate. As with standard HIV tests, a positive test result must be confirmed with another type of test. The FDA approved OraQuick in Home HIV Test performance resulted in 99.9% of people (4,902 out of 4,903) tested correctly reporting a negative test result and 91.7 % of HIV positive people (88 out of 96) tested correctly reporting a positive test result. As with standard HIV tests, a positive test result must be confirmed with another type of test.

    • Is the OraQuick rapid test a saliva test?

      The OraQuick oral fluid rapid HIV test is not a saliva test. It uses oral fluid, which is slightly different from saliva.

      Oral fluid, collected from the gumline, contains antibodies. Antibodies are proteins produced by the body's immune (defense) system to fight infection. If there are antibodies to HIV, it indicates that the person has been infected with HIV.

    • How do I know if the test is working?

      You will know the test is working if you see a line next to the letter "C" on the test stick. This will occur if you have followed the instructions carefully and you have waited at least 20 minutes after placing the test stick in the test tube.

      If there is NO line by the letter "C" on the test stick, the test is defective.  Please dispose of the used test by closing the package and placing it in the disposal bag that is provided in the lower compartment of the test kit. You can dispose of the bag with your regular garbage  no extra precautions are necessary. This bag will help protect your privacy so you can throw it away in any trash can.

      If your test is did not work properly or you remain unsure, please repeat the OraQuick testing procedure with a new test kit and carefully follow all the handling and testing instructions. Please read the instructions before you begin the test and be sure that you understand how to take your sample, place it in the vial for no less than 20 minutes and no more than 40 minutes before you read the test.

    • I'm pregnant and/or breastfeeding. Can I use the test?

      It is safe to use the OraQuick In-Home HIV test if you are pregnant and/or breastfeeding

    • I'm not sure I swabbed my gums correctly. Will my test results be valid?

      If you are not sure whether you swabbed your gums correctly, check for a line next to the letter "C" on the test stick.

      If a line appears next to the letter "C" on the test stick, you will know your test is working and your results will be accurate. This will occur if you have followed the instructions carefully and you have waited at least 20 minutes after placing the test stick in the test tube.

      If you do not see a line next to the letter "C," the test is not working properly and you will need to get a new test.

      Please repeat the OraQuick testing procedure with a new test kit and carefully follow all the handling and testing instructions. Please read the instructions before you begin the test and be sure that you understand how to take your sample, place it in the vial for no less than 20 minutes and no more than 40 minutes before you read the test.

      Please dispose of the used test by closing the package and placing it in the disposal bag that is provided in the lower compartment of the test kit. You can dispose of the bag with your regular garbage; no extra precautions are necessary. This bag will help protect your privacy so you can throw it away in any trash can.

    • What do the letters "C" and "T" on the test stick mean?

      The letter "C" on the test stick stands for "control." A line should appear next to the letter "C" if you have followed the instructions carefully and have waited 20 minutes after placing your test stick in the test tube. This line means that your test is working. If NO line appears next to the letter "C," it means your test is not working and you will need to get a new test.

      The letter "T" on the test stick stands for "test." A line next to the letter "T," even if the line is faint, and a line next to the letter "C", means that you have a positive test result and you may have HIV. You will need a second test to confirm your test result. A "T' line, even if the line is faint, and no "C" line means the test is not working and you will need to get a new test.

      If you have a preliminary positive result, you will need a second test to confirm your test result. Please visit your doctor or local clinic to obtain a follow up test in a medical setting. A doctor, clinic or healthcare professional must confirm your OraQuick® In-Home HIV Test result.
