Could you test negative on antibody test but positive on orasure test? Or would blood work probaly be more sensitive than mouth secretions to test for hiv? Thanks.

People often think that Orasure is the test itself. But Orasure is just the collection kit used to collect the OMT
(oral mucousal transduit) that they use to test for HIV. They actually use the Elisa test. As far as results go it (OMT) apparently is even slightly more accurate then blood
just meaning that it is greater then 99%.
Good luck
