Diagnostics & Testing

Infectious Disease

OraSure offers several infectious disease tests based on lateral-flow technology. The ease-of-use and reliability of the products make them ideal for use in clinic and in outreach settings, enabling greater access to high-risk individuals. Rapid testing also enables the patient to receive a result in one interaction, thereby allowing them to be linked to care.

  • OraQuick® HIV family of products includes rapid testing for HIV that provides an answer in as little as 20 minutes. Its ease of use has led to its adoption across the globe as it enables access to patients that may not go to a clinic for testing, and use in low-resource settings. The family of products includes:
    • OraQuick ADVANCE® Rapid HIV-1/2 Antibody Test - the first FDA-approved, CLIA-waived, rapid point-of-care test that can detect antibodies to both HIV-1 and HIV-2. For use in professional settings.
    • OraQuick® In-Home HIV Test - the first and only oral fluid rapid over-the-counter HIV test approved in the U.S. For self-test use; available online and through retail outlets.

  • OraQuick® HCV Rapid Antibody Test – the first FDA-approved, CLIA-waived rapid HCV test. In Europe, it is the only CE-marked approved, point-of-care device that works on oral fluid, whole blood, serum and plasma for HCV. OraQuick HCV is approved for the detection of HCV antibodies for individuals with signs and symptoms or at risk of infection.
  • OraSure QuickFlu® Rapid Flu A+B Test - an FDA-cleared and CLIA-waived in vitro rapid qualitative test for the detection of influenza (flu) type A and type B, including H1N1 viral infections.
