HIV self-testing has gone through significant technological advancements since the first CE marked test back in 2015. Now, for the first time, it is possible to know your status simply by swabbing your gums – no blood is needed!
What’s new about HIV self-tests?
We are so delighted to be working with OraSure, to bring you the most technically advanced and the first CE marked oral fluid HIV self- test available. Those of you who know us, know that everything we do is with you firmly in mind, to give you the tools to make your own better informed choices – and now knowing your status has never been easier.
Can I have confidence in an oral fluid test?
The OraQuick HIV Self Test has proven accuracy of >99.7%. There is data from around the world evidencing it’s >99.9% sensitivity and >99.8% sensitivity. The test detects the antibodies to HIV, not the virus itself and that is why although you can’t catch HIV from kissing, you can know your status from an oral fluid sample!
Is it easy to use?
So simple! All you have to do is an easy and pain free swab of your top gums and bottom gums and you get your own straightforward result in just 20 minutes.
The only thing to remember is not to eat or drink for 15 minutes before and no mouth cleaning products for 30 mins before, otherwise your result may not be accurate.
This test is so simple and discrete, you can literally test where you want, when you want and with who you want. So, whether relaxing at home, with a friend close to hand or testing on your own somewhere away from home where you feel comfortable, you are in control.
How do I know if I’ve performed the test correctly?
The OraQuick HIV Self Test will ONLY give you a result if you have collected enough oral fluid. This very important feature is called a sample control line. If you do not add enough oral fluid (or in fact no oral fluid at all) then no lines will appear on the test strip, so you can be confident in your result.
