October 2009

There are currently 6 rapid HIV antibody tests that are licensed in the United States for screening of HIV infection. Those listed with an asterisk - there are 5 of these 6 - are also CLIA waived for point-of-care testing. Of note, many of these are available and FDA approved for testing saliva, plasma, serum, as well as whole blood, and they utilize a variety of chemistry methods, especially lateral flow immunochromatography or a flow-through membrane immunoconcentration.
