The OraQuick test is the only rapid test licensed to screen both oral fluids and blood for HIV
, according to Bloomberg. Bob Wood, director of the HIV
control program at the Seattle-based department, said that in 5,460 tests, OraQuick failed to detect at least 8% of 133 people found to be HIV-positive with a non-rapid diagnostic. This compared with the 0.7% rate given on the test's label.
