HIV Antibody Testing

Utah AIDS Foundation offers a rapid 4th generation HIV test using the Alere Determine™ HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo and the OraQuick HCV® Antibody Rapid HCV test. Determine requires a finger-stick whole blood sample and results are ready during your same visit. OraQuick HCV® is a finger-stick and the results are also ready during the same visit. All results for HIV must be given in person to protect your confidentiality.

  • Alere Determine Antigen/Antibody Combo Test: 4 week period
  • Oraquick HCV Antibody: 3 - 6 month period

*Rapid HIV testing is FREE for those who have engaged in risk in the last 12 months*

ALL personal information you give us, as well as your test results, will remain completely confidential!

Should you get an HIV test?

If you check one or more of the below risk factors, you should be tested for HIV:

  • I have had unprotected anal or vaginal sex with someone who has had other partners.
  • I have shared needles to inject drugs or had sex with someone who has shared needles.
  • I have shared needles for other reasons or had sex with someone who has.

Learn About HIV Testing

At the Utah AIDS Foundation, we conduct a rapid fourth generation Ag/Ab Combo Test called the Alere Determine™ HIV-1/2 Ag/Ab Combo. Use this chart to learn more about the test. If you have additional questions about the test, please call 1-800-FON-AIDS or follow the links at the bottom of this page.

How does the test work?

  • The test is run using blood collected via a finger prick test. Using a small sterile lancet, we collect a few droplets of blood (specifically, about 50 µL of blood).

When do I get my results?

  • The same night you take the test. The test takes 20 minutes to run

Is there anything I should be concerned about?

  • Be aware that you will know the results the same day you are tested. Think carefully about whether you are ready for the possibility of receiving a reactive result the same day you are tested.

What else should I know?

  • You must wait 4 weeks from the potential exposure to take the test for accurate results. The test only requires a few drops of blood. No needles will be used to draw blood from your arm.

Is it FDA approved?

  • Yes.
