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.
Offers patients accurate HIV testing without the need for blood or needles providing more comfortable testing.
