what kind of test did I take?
      #78843 - 11/29/03 06:40 AM

I was given a finger prick test in which 5 drops of blood were put onto a card....a drop of blood in each of 5 circles. What test was given to me and is it even accurate?

That might sound like the Reveal Rapid HIV test. It is FDA approved. It is just as accurate as the standard ELISA tests. Supposedly you get your results in 3 minutes. I know you didn't have the Oraquick one because the drops of blood are not put into a card. Hope that helps...
