HIV Home Test Kits
Now there is new hope in the fight against AIDS because early detection and treatment can save your life.
HOW IT WORKS
Besides being fast, convenient and accurate, the Home Access HIV test system is easy to use. Each test kit comes with a detailed instructions booklet with illustrations which will take you through pre-test registration and counseling; collecting a blood sample; shipping that sample to our accredited laboratory and calling back for test results, post-test counseling and referrals.
The Home Access Test System is easy to use. Throughout the testing process, professionally trained counselors are available to provide assistance and to answer your questions. To protect your privacy, you are identified only by your eleven-digit Home Access code number (which comes with the kit).
New AIDS drugs are making a difference for hundreds of thousands of HIV infected individuals. While there is still no cure for AIDS, many infected individuals have regained control of their lives. New drug treatments have transformed AIDS into a manageable condition with some individuals having no detectable level of virus in their blood streams at all. There has never been a better time to get tested. Test results and counseling are completely anonymous. Our simple at-home collection method combined with our accurate laboratory testing method insures that you get a reliable test result quickly and conveniently. Using the Home Access HIV test is a great first step in formulating your own personal prevention plan.
Code Number Registration and Pre-Test Counseling
After your purchase your test you begin by calling a toll free number to register your anonymous Home Access code number and complete pre-test counseling, questions and demographic information. You can choose to speak to a Home Access counselor or use our automated registration and education system. Our counselors are available to help you with any questions or personal concerns.
Using the retractable safety lancet provided, you prick your fingertip and place drops of blood on the blood specimen card included in the test kit. You only need enough blood to fill a circle the size of a dime.
Your blood sample is protected by an enclosed weather resistant protective pouch which is placed in a self-addressed, pre-paid FedEx or U.S. Mail shipping envelope, all included in the test kit. Your sample is shipped directly to our certified laboratory.
The Home Access laboratory is FDA approved and CLIA certified (laboratory registration certificate CLIA #14D0981820). Our procedures and protocols have been certified by the United States Food and Drug Administration under cGMPs (Current Good Manufacturing Practices). At the laboratory, your blood sample is tested by experienced technicians using the exact same test ordered by doctors' offices, hospitals and clinics, ensuring greater than 99.9% accuracy.
