OraSure Technologies Joins With Actress/Model Dayana Mendoza And The Latino Commission On AIDS To Promote The OraQuick(R) In-Home HIV Test For National Latino AIDS Awareness Day

OraQuick ® In-Home HIV Test Now Available in Retail Stores Nationwide

Press Conference at New York City Hall Monday, October 15 @ 10:00 AM

BETHLEHEM, Pa., Oct. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OraSure Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:OSUR) today announced that it will join with actress/model and former Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza and the Latino Commission on AIDS to promote the OraQuick ® In-Home HIV test and the importance of knowing your HIV status for National Latino AIDS Awareness Day, taking place on October 15, 2012.

National Latino AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD) is a national community mobilization campaign that was established in 2003 by the Latino Commission on AIDS in response to the devastating impact of HIV and AIDS on Hispanic/Latino communities nationwide. NLAAD unites the diverse Hispanic/Latino community in an effort to raise HIV awareness and promote HIV testing, prevention and education.

OraSure recently announced the launch of its OraQuick® In-Home HIV Test, the first rapid infectious disease test ever to be made available directly to consumers for in-home use. As part of the launch, the Company is addressing a major public health need by collaborating with Ms. Mendoza, as well as other celebrities, in an ongoing educational campaign on the importance of knowing your HIV status.

"HIV/AIDS is a significant health threat to Hispanic/Latino communities in the United States," said Ms. Mendoza. "Knowing your status is the best thing, no matter who you are. The good news is that there's now a new way to learn your status and help prevent the spread of HIV. The FDA recently approved OraQuick, the first in-home oral rapid HIV test. OraQuick allows you to test for HIV in the comfort and privacy of your home, with results in just 20 minutes."

"The new OraQuick® In-Home HIV Test is a critical new tool in addressing the impact of HIV/AIDS in our communities," said Guillermo Chacón, President of the Latino Commission on AIDS. "This test will help to reduce stigma and fill an unmet need by providing an additional testing option for individuals who otherwise might not get tested."
