Worried about hiv exposure

Please someone help me. At work I was cut by a very small piece of glass. The cut is very superficial, the was some blood very little, and only was there for about 2 minutes. The glass came from slides that you would use under a microscope. On the slide was  human sample that might have had HIV. The sample was 10-15 years old. Do you think that I should be worried about contacting HIV. Is it even possible for HIV to survive this long even if it was preserved properly?

You have to follow your companies blood borne pathogen standard even though it was not a risk for HIV transmission.
