It's as accurate as blood but without the prick...

This next question is the super important part.

Did you know?

The OraQuick HIV Self Test will ONLY give you a result if you have collected enough oral fluid. This mechanism is absolutely critical if you want to be sure that you performed your test correctly, otherwise how can you trust your result!

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. No lines = invalid result. If you don't get any lines you will need to test again with a new OraQuick test device.

Many other tests on the market DO NOT have this. They will generate a control (negative) line even if you do not add any blood, because the buffer solution is what makes the control line appear. You will get a negative result without ever knowing if you have performed your test correctly. 

If you want to be confident that your result is accurate and reliable and that you have performed your test correctly, it is important that you choose a test that will only give you a result if you have performed your test correctly. Always be careful which test you choose to #KnowYourStatus. 

There are many more questions that have been raised, so please see our HIV Self Test FAQ's and HIV FAQ's.
