hiv

Avatar n tn I had unprotected sex with a friend, 28 days after that se tested negative on a 4th generation test, i tooked an hiv test after 90 days but the lab told me that due to holidays the result will be available after 7 days and that they will refrigerate the sample until then. My question is if hiv will still detectable in that conditions.
Avatar m tn Cutoff value : 1.00 Sample Rate: 0.04 What does it means. Is the testing method accurate...I am not known with the testing method... " Experts Comment Please...
Avatar m tn If there is no anti-HIV in the sample then sample moves to the test area “T” together with unbound (free) recombinant HIV antigens conjugated with colloidal gold particles. Immobilized recombinant HIV antigens can not bind to mobilized recombinant HIV antigens comjugated with colloidal gold particles, therefore no visible colored signal in test area “T” (no colored test line) can be obtained, indicating negative test result.
Avatar n tn I was exposed to HIV. I had a HIV antibody and antigen test 5 years later. ( Blood sample) . It came back negative. I am aware that there is a 3 month window period.. But my question is... Would there still be HIV antibodies (antibodies that the blood test will pick up) in the body after 5 years of exposure ?? (assuming u were HIV positive). Thank you.
Avatar m tn I took my last test on 8th December in a different diagnostic center which was after 3 months from the possible exposure.The result was negative but the test result was as Sample OD .113 and Cutoff OD .215.I have two questions: 1)Is sample rate and sample OD means the same thing? 2)My last result indicates that my sample OD(.113) is near the cutoff rate(.215).Does it indicate that I am going to be infected with HIV very soon? Please let me know.I am totally broken thinking about it.
Avatar n tn I got the results back today from an STD test. They said my urine was100% fine but that there was a "slightly positive" result in the semen sample. They said it ment that there were some bacteria but inconclusive to determine which kind? When I asked if I have an STD or what they said no no but there were some bacteria. Now they want to switch me to another antibiotic. I'm on Cipro now but they want to try something more aggro for chlamydia and they want another sperm sample?
Avatar m tn can cell phone (radiation) effect blood (almost 2 cc blood sample) and result of this hiv test to be wrong?can it affect antibody of blood sample or cells of blood sample and cause wrong or fake result?(result was negative) ..should test again? please answer completely..
Avatar n tn Hello please could Lizzie Lou or Teak please answer my questions Thank you Aweek ago i had 90 day hiv test done at nhs clinic the nurse taking my blood had a cold My question before she took blood from arm she to blow her nose at least twice i think she washed her hands and chanced gloves each time if any of her nose mucus (snot) was on her hands or glove could she transfer hiv to me if she was hiv+ when she took my blood it took her at least three four times to get blood and tried two veins so
Avatar f tn My question is, since HIV test was combined with other tests, is there a possibility that the HIV result gives inaccurate result? I am just wondering how usually these combined tests work. are the tests performed individually or just run my blood once and get results.
Avatar n tn The HIV Home Access HIV test is an at-home FDA approved doctor recommended test that offers over 99.9% accuracy. Each home test kit comes with collection supplies for collecting and mailing your sample of blood to a certified laboratory for analysis. All shipping is prepaid. Confidential results will be made available in approximately 7-10 business days from the date you mail-back your specimen sample to the laboratory.
Avatar f tn I know the window period is 90 days but because I was so worried the doctor did a viral load test. She said that if I have HIV the viral load test will detect it. My test was normal but I did some research and according to the information the viral load test will come out undetectable if you do not have enough virus in your blood stream. How accurate is this test? The reason for the concern is that I had repeated unprotected sex with my partner for 2 weeks straight. He says that he is o.
Avatar n tn -DO YOU MEAN THAT IF THEY (HOME ACCESS) HAD ANY PROBLEM WITH MY BLOOD SAMPLE THAT THEY COULD NOT TEST IT AND I WOULD HAVE TO BE TOLD THAT THEY COULD NOT TEST IT BECAUSE OF THE TAPE OR WHATEVER CONTAMINATED IT ? I USE HOME ACCESS BECAUSE IT IS CLEARED BY THE FDA, JUST TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE. ALSO, BECAUSE I GOT WORD BACK FROM MY DOCTOR THAT I NOW HAVE DIABETES, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, HIGH CHOLESTROL AND A PROBLEM WITH MY LIVER, COULD ANY OF THAT EFFECT MY RESULTS ? I LOOK FOWARD TO YOUR ANSWER.
Avatar f tn When i used ethanol as sample, the result was reactive, and the COI was 3.67. Then I changed another new ethanol as the sample, and the result was the same. I want to know why? Is there Ab in ethanol in ethanol? Thanks!
Avatar m tn The degree to which p24 antigen assays can detect p24 antigen from all clades of HIV-1, HIV-2, and HIV-1 Group O, however, is unknown.
Avatar m tn As the mixture is allowed to migrate along the test strip, the conjugate/HIV antibody complex is captured by a second antibody immobilized on a membrane forming a colored test band in the test region. A negative sample does not produce a test band due to the absence of colloidal gold conjugate/HIV antibody complex. The antigens used in the conjugate test are recombinant proteins that correspond to highly immunoreactive regions of HIV1 and HIV2." This was the test kit: http://www.
