First Over-the-Counter HIV Test Approved

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

Americans will be able to test to see if they are HIV positive in the comfort of their own homes, thanks to the first over-the-counter FDA-approved test. The test, known as OraQuick, uses a mouth swab to detect antibodies in saliva, giving a result in less than 40 minutes.
