OraQuick is an HIV test that provides results in 20 minutes, with 99.6 percent accuracy. It was approved in November 2002 by the American FDA.

The test, which detects antibodies to HIV, requires a drop of blood, easily obtained by pricking a person's finger. The blood is mixed in a vial with developing solution, and the results are read from a sticklike testing device.
