Any HIV testing uses two methods for instant or rapid tests.
- HIV Urine Test

The kits we use for HIV rapid test has both provisions. You can either opt for a blood test kit or a urine test kit. Both of these are equally good.
Why one kit uses blood where as the other one uses urine samples?
It’s nothing more than a personal preference.
Every rapid HIV test uses an antibody test. It’s basically a screening test that produces very quick results, say in approximately 10 to 20 minutes. They use blood, oral swabs or urine to check the HIV antibody level in the body.
These rapid tests have same accuracy rates as any Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) screening tests. For details check the HIV Testing page.
