Can you get hiv from the antigens in the hiv tests. I used the oraquick mouths was and I punctured the viewing panel where the line results are read. I read this strip contains hiv antigens to be precise:
"Test Stick, containing a nitrocellulose membrane with adsorbed HIV-1 and HIV-2 synthetic peptides and goat anti-human IgG, and a pad containing a blocking agent and protein-A colloidal gold"
If I came into physical contact with this membrane could I contract the virus?
Does it matter their synthetic?
I also got a bit of the buffer on my fingers is this okay?
