Health Services now offers FDA approved INSTI® HIV -1/HIV-2 Rapid Antibody Tests. INSTI® HIV is the world’s fastest HIV test providing results in as little as 60 seconds. In addition to being the fastest test in the world, INSTI is over 99% accurate and the most sensitive rapid antibody test currently on the point of care market—meaning it can detect HIV earlier than all other tests of its kind, according to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) data. The test uses a drop of finger stick blood which is proven to be more accurate than oral fluid.
It is estimated that over 1.1 million people are HIV positive in America and 1 in 6 don’t know they are infected. The first step is taking the test. The CDC recommends routine HIV screening for all Americans aged 15 to 65 – not just those deemed to be “at risk.”
There is a $12 charge for the test.
