Hi welcome to healthcaremagic

The HIV test done in india for screening is Tridot card test, they will put a drop of blood and observe for any appearance of line in the card which is same intense of the already given line in the card, if both the line are same then the test is positive, if the line which appear after the blood is put, is dull or mild than the given reference line then the test is rear as negative... the test is usually done in lab , the card is not sold out...
