Hi Guys, I am extremely worried about this. The other day my hand scratched a pipette tip containing HIV blood I was wearing a medical glove. When I removed the glove I was not bleeding however I spotted some dried blood on my hand. Am I at risk??

Dried blood does not transmit HIV. It would also seem that the glove you wore protected you from getting a scratch. Also it would take a lot more than a little blood and a little scratch to transmit the virus.

If you have any more concerns I suggest you take them up with your supervisor.
