Adelaide’s first rapid HIV testing service has arrived.
SHINE SA’s Rapido clinic offers a free, less confronting testing experience for gay men, men who have sex with men (MSM), trans, and gender diverse people.
We use a ‘peer’ service model – the testers doing the rapid testing are not doctors or nurses, but trained members of the GLBTIQ+ community.
With a simple finger-prick test, you will find out your result in just 20 minutes.
How does rapid testing work?
Rapid tests detect antibodies which are present if you have an HIV infection.
At Rapido, we use the Trinity Biotech Uni-Gold Rapid HIV test to screen for HIV antibodies.
The Uni-Gold test device is extremely accurate – over 99% accurate.
