Prepare for the test.

  • Do not eat, drink or use oral care products (mouthwash, toothpaste, whitening strips, etc.) 30 minutes before starting this test.
  • Remove dental products such as dentures or any other products that cover your gums.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly (soap and water for at least 20 seconds).
  • Find a quiet, well-lit place where you can be for at least 20 minutes.
  • If you use glasses to read, you will need them for taking this test.
  • Have a timer, watch or another time keeping tool that can record time for 20 to 40 minutes.


  • You must be 17 or older to use this test.
  • If you are living with HIV the OraQuick test is not meant for you.
  • If you have participated in an HIV vaccine clinical trial, you may get a positive result using this test, but it may not mean that you are infected with HIV. You should seek follow-up with the research group.
  • If you think you have been infected in the last three months, this test is not right for you, and you would benefit from an HIV test in clinic.
