The same, but different.

The OraQuick HIV Self Test brought to you by BioSure uses lateral flow technology very similar to a pregnancy test, but it detects the specific antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2 (not actual HIV)

When your body detects something harmful (like a bacteria or a virus) your immune system starts to produce antibodies. Each type of antibody is unique, and everyone develops them at different rates (see Window Period below)

Like pregnancy testing, you get your own easy-to-read, accurate result while you wait.

Self-testing puts you in charge, so you can test where you want, when you want and with who you want.  

How can you test for HIV with oral fluid when you can't catch HIV from kissing?

It is absolutely confirmed through years of global research that you cannot catch HIV from saliva.

Although there are more antibodies in a blood sample than in oral fluid, the volume of an oral fluid sample is much greater and this is why the accuracy of oral fluid antibody HIV tests are comparable to those of blood based antibody HIV tests.

The OraQuick HIV Self Test has been proven to be more that 99.7% accurate in multiple studies across the globe.

It's never been easier to take control of you.

What is the HIV Window Period?

Everyone produces antibodies at different rates, dependinh upon their immune system.

About half of people have produced antibodies to HIV (seroconverted) by 4 weeks after transmission. This goes up to about 95% of people by 6 weeks, but some people make their antibodies up to 12 weeks after transmission.

This is why you can test from 4 weeks after possible exposure, and although encouraging, you must not rely on a negative result until 12 weeks after exposure.

A positive test result is always a positive test result regardless of the window period.

How accurate is the OraQuick HIV Self Test?

The OraQuick HIV Self Test is proven to be extremely effective at diagnosing HIV and is now CE marked for use in Europe and the UK.

Extensive research performed across the globe, has evidenced the kit to be exceptionally usable and tremendously accurate when performed correctly.

It has a proven clinical sensitivity (if a person has HIV how often the test result will correctly be positive) of more than 99.9%, and a proven clinical specificity (if a person doesn’t have HIV how often will the test be correctly negative) of more than 99.8%.

3 simple steps is all it takes...

or as we like to say, 'Swipe. Dip. Done'

Just an easy and pain free swab once of your top and bottom gums, place your test device into the tube of liquid and get your own results in 20 minutes.

Come on, it's never been easier

#KnowYourStatus

Can I trust my result?

A vital part of self-testing is knowing whether you have performed your test correctly and that you can trust your result.

Well, we at BioSure can confidently say that if you have at least one line on your OraQuick HIV Self Test, then you have performed your test correctly and your result is reliable.

The OraQuick HIV Self Test have a special inbuilt feature called a Sample Control Line. This means the negative line can only appear if you have applied enough oral fluid. If you haven't used enough oral fluid then no lines will appear. This is the only way you can be sure you have performed your test correctly and be confident in your result.

Most other rapid tests only have what is called a procedural control line, which means any liquid applied to the test will

Sample Control line

The OraQuick HIV Self Test has a special inbuilt feature called a Sample Control Line.

This means the negative (Control) line can only appear if you have applied enough oral fluid. If you haven't used enough oral fluid then no lines will appear.

This is the only way you can be sure you have performed your test correctly and be confident in your result.

Most other rapid tests only have what is called a procedural control line, which means that any liquid applied to the test will
make the control line appear, even if there is no sample! You have no way of knowing if you have performed your test correctly and will think you have a negative test result.

Know what you are buying. Be sure with BioSure.

What does U=U mean?

If you are a person living with HIV, antiretroviral treatments (ART's) are now so effective, that if they are taken correctly HIV can be supressed to undetectable levels (also known as viral suppression) This is because the ARTs stop HIV from reproducing and that means your immune system can repair itself and isn’t further damaged. The incredible result of this is that not only is the person's health protected, but it is scientifically proven that they cannot pass the virus on, even through unprotected sex.. This also means that you can live an active and healthy life and have a normal life expectancy. But, you can’t treat if you don’t test.
