Query about buying a test on Amazon

Hi there,

Is buying the biosure HIV test on the official website ( the same as buying it on Amazon? (

Due to the faster delivery times I ordered from and have taken the test with a negative result.

I am just paranoid now that it is not the same test and that the needle used to prick my finger from the kit was not sterile…very paranoid and highly unlikely I know but can someone please put my mind at ease?

Thanks very much.

Hi Hmmm The product is currently unavailable on Amazon, as Amazon have decided to de-list all medical devices due to an internal review, and are re-instating products on a case by case basis. We are doing all that we can to get the product relisted and hopefully this process will soon be complete. You can always buy from the our own website,, until the product is available on Amazon again. You could also contact Amazon directly. They need to know how important this product is to people and hopefully this will speed up their review. I hope that this answers your question. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited

Why is this product not on amazon any more? FROM PEBL:- ****     Hi Hmmm. Thanks for using PEBL.    The best place to discuss the HIV testing is on the dedicated website:- . That site is ALL about HIV testing and we think you'll find it interesting if you haven't seen it. Don't worry - we have put your post there as well as on this "general" PEBL Feedback site.  To find the discussion about the test being sold on Amazon, just put "Amazon" into the search box on the dedicated website:-                  With best wishes, PEBL.
