How soon can HIV be detected by blood test?

HIV can be detected by a blood test as early as 10 to 33 days after exposure, depending on the type of test used.

How is HIV Tested?

Antibody tests: Check for antibodies in a person’s blood or oral fluid. Most rapid tests and only FDA-approved home tests are antibody tests. Antibody tests that use blood from a vein can detect HIV sooner than tests from a finger stick or with oral fluid.

Antigen/antibody tests: Look for both HIV antibodies and antigens. Antibodies are produced by the immune system when exposed to viruses; antigens are foreign substances that cause the immune system to activate. Antigen/antibody tests are recommended for lab testing on blood from a vein. There are also rapid tests available with a finger stick.

NATs: Look for the actual virus in the blood. This test is for those who had recent exposure or possible exposure with early symptoms of HIV and have tested negatively with an antibody or antigen/antibody test.

How long does HIV testing take?

HIV self-tests can provide results within 20 minutes.

Rapid antibody tests with finger stick or oral fluid provide results within 30 minutes or less.

Rapid antigen/antibody tests, done with a finger stick, take 30 minutes or less.

It can take several days to receive test results from a NAT or antigen/antibody lab test.

Where can I get tested?

You can get tested at UAF Legacy Health’s Testing Center or request an at-home test kit for added convenience and privacy.

What is non-reactive HIV testing?

Non-reactive HIV testing, also called negative, means that HIV antibodies or antigens were not found in the tested sample.
