OraSure® HIV-1 Oral Specimen Collection Device

OraSure® HIV-1 Oral Specimen Collection Device enables the collection of an oral fluid sample for use with a lab-based EIA screening test that delivers accurate results for antibodies to HIV-1. Positive screening tests are followed by an OraSure® HIV-1 Western Blot.

  • Easy-to-Administer
    Provides a fast and easy method for sample collection, enabling non-medical professionals, such as insurance agents and human resources professionals, to collect samples for laboratory processing.
  • Fast and Simple Collection
    The patient places the OraSure device between the lower cheek and gum for 2-5 minutes. The pad draws oral fluid, which is rich in antibodies and contains far fewer contaminants than typically found in saliva. The pad is transported to a lab in a vial that contains a preservative which stabilizes the sample for up to 21 days at 39° F to 98° F.
  • Patient-Preferred
    Offers patients accurate HIV testing without the need for blood or needles providing more comfortable testing.
  • Confirmatory Test
    Provides confirmatory testing with the OraSure® HIV-1 Western Blot, an FDA approved confirmatory test for use with the same OraSure® HIV-1 oral fluid sample. (Western Blot test is a separate purchase and conducted in a laboratory setting.)
