Welcome to HCM.
HIV can live in all body fluids and also in inflammatory exudate of a HIV positive individuals. But chances of gettig HIV by handling the fluid is negligible. So nothing to worry. Laboratory technicians and ENT surgeons who are likely to handle the same always advised to follow universal work precautions.
