Physicians in Canada are now able to purchase a 60-second HIV testing machine. Previously, individuals wanting to be tested for the disease had to wait 2-3 weeks to get the results from provincial laboratories. Now, it’s as simple as a trip to the doctor’s office.
Meanwhile, the US FDA is considering approving a do-it-yourself home HIV test. This is good to hear, because 1 in 4 AIDS patients in the US don’t know they have it!
One thought on “Faster, Better HIV Tests”
I remember the feeling on uncertainty the last time I had a test, this will be a big improvement… I hope similar advances can be made in testing other diseases.
