OraQuick In-Home HIV Test Available Online

OraSure Technologies has begun online sales of its OraQuick In-Home HIV Test, The Morning Call reports. The single-use test costs $39.99 on the OraQuick website and is expected to be available soon for over-the-counter sales in retail locations such as CVS, Walgreens and Walmart. The test uses an oral swab and gives results in 20 to 40 minutes. The Food and Drug Administration approved the test in July, which made it the first rapid in-home HIV test in the United States.
